All the money has been paid back to the workers in question and the list is compiled by HM Revenue and Customs after investigating each business.
Business minister Margot James, speaking about the list as a whole, said: 'This government is determined to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
'That means making sure everyone gets paid the wages they are owed – including our new, higher, National Living Wage. It is not acceptable that some employers fail to pay at least the minimum wage their workers are entitled to.
'So we'll continue to crack down on those who ignore the law, including by naming and shaming them.'
