Brief Description of Requirement

The aim of this study is to gain a better understanding of the impact of minimum wages, especially the National Living Wage, on businesses. Up to three separate projects will be commissioned in this process. The findings will inform LPC deliberations in October 2019 for the uprating of the NLW (and the other age-related minimum wage rates) in April 2020 and subsequent discussions for minimum wage changes beyond 2020. This research will contribute to the understanding of how firms are adjusting to the NLW.

Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement. All attachments can be found with the RFx attachments tab within the Emptoris System.
