Sports Direct employment practices questioned

  • Posted

The Guardian claims workers at Sports Direct are receiving effective hourly rates of pay below the minimum wage. An investigation found staff undergo searches at the end of each shift, for which their time is unpaid, and also suffer harsh deductions from wage packets for clocking in just one minute late. It suggests such practices do not fall within the law relating to the minimum wage.
