Commenting on the Government response to the Taylor Review, Tim Thomas, Director of Employment & Skills Policy at EEF, the manufacturers' organisation, said:

"Today's announcement on a wide ranging package of measures taking forward all but one of Matthew Taylor's recommendations, strikes the difficult balance between retaining the flexibility of the UK's labour market, vital to manufacturers, and ensuring that good work is promoted. Manufacturers are well-ahead of the curve when it comes to the transparency of working conditions and engaging with their skilled and valued workforce and make little use of measures identified by Taylor as of concern, such as worker status.

But, in transitioning from policy to regulation, government must ensure that employers who already provide high-quality, well-paid work, and who train in order for their workers to gain, are not left out in the cold."
