Glover’s Bakery Limited has been named for failing to pay two employees £11,320.33.

The bakery has six shops across Leyland, Chorley, Euxton, Lostock Hall and Bamber Bridge.

Blog Preston has approached Glover’s Bakery Limited for a statement.

The Buttonhole, a fabric and haberdashery shop in Chorley, failed to pay £9,946.28 to one worker. Holistic Wellness Limited, in Preston, failed to pay £107.26 to one worker.

The list of 360 employers was published by the government last week, revealing more than 15,500 of the lowest paid workers have been underpaid almost a £1million.

Business minister Margot James said: “Every worker in the UK is entitled to at least the national minimum or living wage and this government will ensure they get it.

“That is why we have named and shamed more than 350 employers who failed to pay the legal minimum, sending the clear message to employers that minimum wage abuses will not go unpunished.”
