The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) has recommended that the government set up a single “fair employment commission” to secure individual vulnerable workers their rights and to root out rogue employers. According to the CAB, last year it dealt with more than half a million employment related queries across the United Kingdom, of which 60 percent involved the denial of basic statutory workplace rights such as the minimum wage, paid holiday and statutory sick pay. The CAB recommends that the combined remit of the four bodies responsible for enforcing workers’ rights (HM Revenue & Customs, the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate, the Health and Safety Executive and the Gangmasters Licensing Authority) be extended to cover all core statutory employment rights and that the four newly integrated agencies, or a new single agency, be equipped with the legal powers to secure individual workers their statutory rights including the bringing of Tribunal claims on their behalf.
