Since April 2016, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has issued 37 penalty notices to employers for failure to comply with orders of employment tribunals to pay compensation to applicants.

Should the penalty notices not be paid, the department will take further enforcement action as necessary and to the full extent of the law to pursue payment.
