The Ombudsman has been criticised for acting more as a mediator than a regulator, but they have now announced new priorities and objectives to hold businesses accountable.

“We will be taking a tougher approach based on risk.

“We will be requiring more court enforceable undertakings with employers who come to us and say they have underpaid.”
