This will include the Department of Health’s statutory guidance as part of the overall guidance on market shaping and commissioning the final version of which will be published in Autumn 2014.</p><p> </p><p>We have considered the National Audit Office report and note that their estimates come from a self-reported survey of care workers.

The Low Pay Commission[2] published the proportion of jobs held by those aged 22 and over, paid below the NMW by sector. Figures show that non-compliance is relatively low in social care (0.8%) compared with other sectors. This is generally in line with non-compliance in the whole economy.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>This estimate, as well as all estimates of non-compliance, has some limitations.
