The annual report is presented of the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate, including statistics of their activities for the year and case studies. An improved risk assessment methodology was developed to target businesses for investigation. Changes in legislation are summarised, mostly related to outlawing abusive practices by model and entertainment agencies. Measures to increase awareness and make it easier for clients to report problems with agencies are described. Statistics are given for number of complaints, cases, inspections and infringements, and number of cases and infringements by sector. Targets for the following year are stated. Three case studies are described, relating to an agent who was guilty of sexually assaulting a client and possession of child pornography, a case of an agency defrauding employers by submitting false invoices, and a case of an agency defrauding clients by failing to pass on cancellation fees.
