Pay up employers, or prepare yourself for a public shaming!

Minumum wageThe Government has unveiled new plans to name and shame any employers, who do not pay their staff the national minimum wage.

The new rules, due to come into force in October this year, have been designed to encourage more employers to pay their staff fairly – or shame them into paying up if they don’t.

According to the TUC (Trade Union Congress), an estimated 250,000 UK workers are paid less than the national minimum wage.

Gender equality in the workplace? Not where money is concerned!

Women are still earning less and receiving smaller bonuses

Women are still earning less and receiving smaller bonuses

According to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), we still have a long way to go before we achieve gender equality in the workplace, where financial rewards are concerned.

In addition to the already existing pay gap between men and women who do the same job, on average, male managers’ bonuses are more than double those of female managers.

The CMI said that last year, the average bonus for female managers was £3,029, while men in similar positions were paid an average bonus of £6,442. These men also already earned salaries that were almost 25% higher than what their female counterparts were being paid.

Seven million UK residents due CPP refunds

Credit cardsHave you purchased a credit card and identity protection policy since 14th of January 2005? If so, you could be one of seven million people in the UK eligible for a refund, due to mis-sold protection products.

The Financial Conduct Authority, the Card Protection Plan Limited (CPP), as well as 13 high street banks and credit card issuers, have reached an agreement, which will see consumers who were wrongly sold a CPP product, get compensated.

Exactly how much money those being refunded might get back will depend on the product they purchased, and the amount of time they had it for. However, the average customer can expect to receive £185.

Alan Davies on money
