10 Jun: UK Government announces new worker watchdog

This watchdog is designed to protect worker’s rights, with responsibility for tackling modern slavery, enforcing minimum wage and ensuring protection for agency workers. As a business that has compliance at its core, we welcome the establishment of this watchdog. The UK government has amalgamated the responsibilities of three agencies (Gangmasters and Labour abuse authorities, the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate and the National Minimum wage enforcement) under the remit of this new watchdog.
