Good Work: the Taylor Review of Modern Employment Practices - Consultation on enforcement of employment rights recommendations

Closed 16 May 2018

Opened 7 Feb 2018


The government seeks views on the recommendations in the Review of Modern Working Practices on the enforcement of employment rights.

This consultation:

  1. Sets out the government’s intention to enforce a wider range of basic employment rights on behalf of vulnerable workers. We’re seeking evidence on the extent of the problem faced by low paid workers in accessing sick pay and holiday pay to help target these enforcement efforts;
  2. Sets out the government’s plans to simplify the enforcement process for employment tribunal awards;
  3. Outlines the government’s intention to introduce a naming scheme for unpaid employment tribunal awards; and
  4. Takes forward the review’s recommendations that employment tribunal judges should be obliged to consider stronger punishments for employers who ignore previous tribunal judgments and seeks views on how best to implement this.
