Independent report: Labour Market Enforcement Strategy 2018 to 2019


This is the first full annual strategy from Sir David Metcalf, the Director of Labour Market Enforcement. It sets outs his recommendations to improve state-led enforcement of employment rights including measures to be taken by the 3 labour market enforcement bodies:

  • Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA)
  • Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS)
  • HMRC National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage team (HMRC NMW)

The independent research report, ‘Regulating the 3 Cs’, was commissioned by the Director to help inform his strategy. The views and opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the official views, policy or position of the Director or government.
