Butchers's £11k fine for not paying minimum wage

A butcher's shop in Yorkshire has been fined £11,000 for not paying two employees the minimum wage.

David Jackson, 60, and his daughter Pauline Smout, 41, of Jackson's Butchers, Parson Cross, Sheffield, pleaded guilty during a hearing before Sheffield magistrates.

The court heard that the shop's accounts had been altered in an attempt to show that the correct wage had been paid.

The pair were fined £800 and ordered to pay £11,000 in compensation to the employees.
