A worker will get £522 wages in arrears after a Luton-based company was found to have failed to pay the National Minimum Wage.
Intredis Securitys Dynamics Ltd of 49 Marsh Road was ordered by Northampton Country Court to pay the worker for failing to meet its legal obligations as an employer.
The security guard company will also have to pay costs of £12 to H M Revenue & Customs.
Michelle Wyer, assistant director of National Minimum Wage for HMRC, said: “Intredis Securitys Dynamics Ltd failed to respond to the evidence presented regarding its failure to pay the National Minimum Wage and we are pleased the Court has made this judgement in their absence.
“Our aim is to enforce the law and protect vulnerable workers. Employers are welcome to approach us at any time for advice through the Pay & Workers Rights helpline 0800 917 2368, or contact us at any stage during an enquiry to discuss resolution of outstanding issues.”
The case was brought under the National Minimum Wage Act 1998.
Intredis Securitys Dynamics Ltd must pay the arrears within 28 days or face further legal action.
