Ten Scottish employers who have failed to pay the national minimum wage have been "named and shamed".

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has released a list of 92 businesses throughout the UK who have broken minimum pay rules.

The arrears owed by the 92 employers to their staff has been calculated to be over £1.8m.

Business minister Nick Boles said there is "no excuse" for failing to pay staff properly.

The Scottish businesses on the list were:

  • Fresh Food Company, Glasgow
  • A franchise of Pizza Hut, Edinburgh
  • Broch Tandoori, Fraserburgh
  • Hair Heroes, Inverness
  • Khushi's, Edinburgh
  • Charlie Miller hairdressing, Edinburgh
  • New Homeworld, Glasgow
  • Elizabeth House, Kirkcaldy
  • Zucca Bistro, East Kilbride
  • Linell Precision Engineering, Johnstone

Mr Boles said: "Our policy of naming and shaming employers who ignore the law means there are consequences for their reputation as well as their wallets.

"In April we will introduce a new National Living Wage which will mean a pay rise of over £900-a-year for someone working full time on the minimum wage and we will enforce this equally robustly."
