Sir David Metcalfe, the UK’s first Director of Labour Market Enforcement has published his long awaited strategy for 2018/19. The paper sets out 37 recommendations targeted at tackling non-compliance in the labour market from ignorant or negligent practices to the criminal exploitation of workers.

With a remit over National Minimum Wage (NMW), Gangmasters & Labour Abuse (GLA) and the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS), Sir David’s recommendations come in response to a public consultation launched in the summer/autumn of 2017 and looks specifically to ensure that labour market laws and regulations are being fully enforced.
