Abstract

Using original data gathered in 2003-06, the authors examine the prevalence and types of non-compliance with labour law in New York City. Workplace violations - or "unregulated work" - are widespread across a range of low-wage industries and have been driven by a mix of economic factors as well as public policy The solution, the authors argue, is to strengthen law enforcement and provide for the new types of employment relationship that have resulted from changes in the organization of work and production.
