A major shoe manufacturer, a pharmacy and a hairdressers are among a list of north London businesses named and shamed on a government list of employers failing to pay the minimum wage.

There have been 202 employers listed nationally who have failed to pay their workers almost £5 million in a breach of national minimum wage law, leaving around 63,000 workers out of pocket.

After investigations between 2017 and 2019, the businesses listed have since paid back what they owe to their staff and have also faced financial penalties.


Dune Group Limited, which has its head office in NW8 near Maida Vale, failed to pay a total of £21,088.48 to 339 workers between January 2017 and July 2018.


Park View Health Clubs Limited in Finchley failed to pay a total of £12,191.87 to four workers between November 2015 and August 2018.


Casual Dining Restaurants, which dissolved in October 4, 2022, operated in the NW1 section of Camden. It owed a total of £4,647.70 to 20 workers between April 2016 and March 2017.


Ms Dimitroulla Antoniou, who runs hairdressing and beauty salon Montage in Islington, owed a total of £3,579.72 to two workers between December 2014 and April 2017.


Mr Vinodrai Pranjivanbhai Tanna, of Tanna Pharmacy in Pinner, owed a total of £1,815.53 to one worker between December 2017 and September 2018.


Nail Retreat London Limited, which dissolved on June 25, 2019, operated in the NW10 section of Brent. The business owed a total of £1,015.23 to two workers between April 2018 and June 2018.

Kevin Hollinrake, the minister for enterprise, markets and small business, said: “Paying the legal minimum wage is non-negotiable and all businesses, whatever their size, should know better than to short-change hard-working staff.

“Most businesses do the right thing and look after their employees, but we’re sending a clear message to the minority who ignore the law: pay your staff properly or you’ll face the consequences.”
