Low Pay Commission research workshop

Louisa Withers was invited by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) to act as a discussant on a research project examining the impact of the NLW on employers in Sheffield and Greater Manchester. Having conducted similar research for the LPC previously, she was able to share her experiences and provide feedback on Sheffield University Business School's proposed approach.

The workshop was well attended and provided a great opportunity to network with other professionals in the pay researcher field, academics and policy makers. The LPC is the body that makes recommendations on statutory minimum wages and it seeks evidence from a range of sources about the impact of minimum rates on employment.
