HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c972W
Mr. Swire

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what procedures her Department has in place to monitor companies accused of ignoring Government guidelines regarding employment law; and what action she is taking to review the effectiveness of such procedures. [55904]

Alan Johnson

The Government do not monitor companies who are accused of ignoring Government guidelines or good practice regarding employment law. However, the Inland Revenue enforces the national minimum wage on behalf of the Department. This process is kept under regular review.

Individuals who believe that their employment rights have been infringed may take their case to an employment tribunal. The Employment Tribunals Service publishes data on tribunal cases annually.
