EEF has responded to the Government's consultation on tackling exploitation in the labour market.

The consultation sought views on a range of proposals to improve the effectiveness of the enforcement of employment rights to protect workers from exploitation.

These include:

  • establishing a statutory Director of Labour Market Enforcement
  • creating a new offence of an aggravated breach of labour market legislation
  • increasing intelligence and data sharing between the existing enforcement bodies
  • widening the remit, increasing the powers and changing the name of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority to enable it to deal with serious exploitation
