Last month, HMRC named over 300 businesses who had failed to pay the statutory minimum wage including Tesco, Debenhams, Subway and Lloyds Pharmacy....
Tesco is due to pay back a total of almost £10m to around 140,000 current and former workers. It seems that after deductions for pensions, childcare, cycle to work schemes, some staff were being paid less than the National Living Wage.
So, good news for Tesco staff, you could be due a little windfall and this will be paid back by the end of March!! Don't get overly excited though, it's likely to work work out at about £40 on average (although some could get a lot more!)

Matt Davies, chief executive of Tesco UK and Ireland, said:
As soon as our own review identified this issue we took immediate action to resolve it and establish which colleagues are affected.
We've apologised to our colleagues and our priority now is to talk to them about how this affects them individually, and make any necessary payments.
