All workers are legally entitled to be paid the National Minimum Wage. This includes temporary seasonal staff, who often work short-term contracts in bars, hotels, shops and warehouses over the summer.
Workers should check their hourly rate and look out for any deductions or unpaid working time, which would reduce their pay. It could take them below the minimum wage.
Anyone not being paid what they are entitled to can complain via GOV.UK
If they want to speak with someone they should phone the Acas Pay and Work Rights Helpline on 0300 123 1100, who may transfer the call to HMRC.
In the 2020 to 2021 tax year, HMRC helped 155,000 workers across the UK to recover more than £16 million in pay which was due to them.
