Labour Market Enforcement

EDM number 670 in 2017-19, proposed by Caroline Lucas on 07/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Industrial relations and Pay.

That this House notes with deep concern the findings of the recent research report by Middlesex University Business School, Unpaid Britain: wage default in the British labour market, that at least two million workers experience non-payment of wages or holiday pay each year and that those unpaid wages amount to at least £1.3 billion per year and the unpaid holiday pay to at least £1.8 billion per year; further notes that the non-payment of holiday pay was also identified as a serious and widespread problem by the Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices, published in July 2017; supports the Taylor Review's recommendation that HM Revenue and Customs should take responsibility for enforcing holiday pay and statutory sick pay, alongside the minimum wage; further supports the Taylor Review's recommendation that the Government should consider whether non-payment of wages should also be enforced by the state; and calls on the Director of Labour Market Enforcement, Sir David Matcalf, to address these research findings and policy recommendations in his forthcoming strategy for improving enforcement of workplace rights.

This motion has been signed by a total of 73 MPs.
