Midcounties underpaid delivery man by £14,000
Britain's biggest independent co-operative, Midcounties, has paid £14,000 to a newspaper delivery man who was underpaid for four years.
It is thought to be the highest single payout to a worker for breaching low pay laws. Another delivery worker was paid £4,000 in missing wages and expenses after claiming he earned as little as 69p per hour on some days.
Midcounties Co-op is now examining whether 200 other workers may have been paid below the minimum wage after HMRC pursued the two complaints from the newspaper deliverymen.
The Guardian newspaper notes that Midcounties Co-op joins a growing list of employers including H&M, Welcome Break and French Connection which have been exposed for breaking the minimum pay law.
