The Good Work Plan sets out an ambitious set of reforms to ensure our employment rights keep pace with the changing world of work. The government is also committed to ensuring workers receive what they are entitled to and protect workers from exploitation.
This consultation considers options to go even further through the creation of a single organisation responsible for enforcing employment rights. This new body would harness and build on the significant developments already made in recent years to improve our enforcement capabilities and better connect those capabilities to wider enforcement partners.
This consultation seeks views on:
- providing a right to reasonable notice of working hours
- providing workers with compensation for shifts cancelled without reasonable notice
It also seeks views on what guidance government can provide to support employers and encourage best practice to be shared across industries.
