Making a complaint against your employer

HMRC and Interns Anonymous have teamed up and prepared guidance for any interns who think they might be entitled to claim back the National Minimum Wage.

HMRC are responsible for enforcing the National Minimum Wage. Recently they have launched a ‘dynamic response unit’ (they are like a SWAT team of tax inspectors) to ensure that interns are paid the National Minimum Wage.

The guidance takes you through the whole process of claiming back any due wages. You can claim wages up to six years after you completed the internship. So even if you have moved on to a new job, you can still claim back wages.

If you have completed or are presently undertaking an internship and think you may be entitled to the National Minimum Wage, you can speak confidentially to the pay and rights helpline on 0800 917 2368.

  1. 1 Report unpaid internship/work 'employers' to HMRC 01/13/2012 at 12:11 am

    Wow congratulations Interns Anonymous! I literally just started a campaign yesterday, purely to spread awareness about this. My campaign centers solely around getting people to report tax fraudster employers to HMRC, please take a look and it would be awesome if you could mention us somewhere in your blog (in return, we will frequently publicise you on our page too).

    This is our Facebook page:
