Non-Compliance and the National Living Wage: Case Study Evidence from Ethnic Minority and Migrant-Owned Businesses

Analysis by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) 'broadly supports the view that the NLW is a substantial change for the labour market, business and workers'. Early evidence of employer responses takes the form of broad-brush coverage of sectors, with little attention to the concrete experiences of owners and workers in small firms. Studies have yet to address the particular issue of non-compliance with the NLW. Our research aims to investigate the concrete ways in which small firms in the 'informal economy' operate, particularly in respect of non-compliance with the NLW and other employment legislation. The research has two components comprising a) long established firms in low paying sectors, and b) business owners and workers from new migrant communities.
