Government papers: Labour Market Enforcement Strategy 2020 to 2021: call for evidence


Matthew Taylor, director of Labour Market Enforcement, has launched a call for evidence to inform his Labour Market Enforcement Strategy for 2020 to 2021.

This call for evidence sets out the main issues and questions on which the Director would like to receive evidence.

The main topics are:

  • non-compliance and enforcement in four high-risk sectors – hand car washes, agriculture, social care, construction
  • non-compliance in other sectors
  • cross cutting issues.

The role of Director of Labour Market Enforcement was created under the Immigration Act 2016 (the Act), jointly sponsored by Home Office (HO) and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to bring better focus and co-ordination to the enforcement of labour market legislation.

The Director has overarching responsibility for setting the strategic direction of the three labour market enforcement bodies: HMRC National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage (NMW/NLW), Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA), and Employment Agency Standards (EAS).

The call for evidence closes on 24 January 2020.
