Consultation description

This call for evidence sets out the issues on which the Director of Labour Market Enforcement would like to receive evidence to inform her labour market enforcement strategy 2023 to 2024.

The director is seeking stakeholder evidence on emerging issues around compliance and enforcement in the UK labour market.

The main topics are:

  • evidence of the scale and nature of the labour non-compliance threat, including whether it varies across the UK
  • challenges in terms of compliance and enforcement for the 3 enforcement bodies under the labour market enforcement remit:
    • HMRC National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage (NMW/NLW)
    • Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA)
    • Employment Agency Standards (EAS)
  • views and ideas on how some of these challenges may be overcome

The director would welcome evidence from stakeholders via 2 channels:

  • written feedback on these questions and any relevant evidence that you may wish to bring to our attention
  • meetings to hear evidence from stakeholders directly
