Wigan Warriors Named As ‘Rogue Employers’ By Government

Wigan Warriors failed to pay over £4.5k to an employee, landing the club on the Government’s ‘rogue employers list’.

A total of 139 businesses were named on The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)’s list following investigations from 2016 to 2018.

Business Minister Paul Scully said: “Paying the minimum wage is not optional, it is the law.

“It is never acceptable for any employer to short-change their workers, but it is especially disappointing to see huge household names who absolutely should know better on this list.

“This should serve as a wake-up call to named employers and a reminder to everyone of the importance of paying workers what they are legally entitled to.

“Make no mistake, those who fail to follow minimum wage rules will be caught out and made to pay up.”
