The fast fashion retailer Quiz has launched a full review of its auditing processes after The Times revealed that workers in Leicester had been offered as little as £3 an hour to make clothes for the company.
Quiz said it believed that one of its suppliers has used a sub-contractor in direct contravention of a previous instruction.
“We are extremely concerned and disappointed to be informed of the alleged breach of national living wage requirements,” Tarak Ramzan, chief executive of Quiz, said.
“We are thoroughly investigating this incident and will also conduct a fuller review of our supplier auditing processes to ensure that they are robust. We will update our stakeholders in due course.”
