Event description

Description

This event will provide an opportunity for businesses to feed into CBI’s submissions to the Government consultations on measures to tackle one-sided flexibility and establishment of a new single enforcement body for employment rights.


The roundtable discussion will consist of two parts: measures to tackle one-sided flexibility and establishing a new single enforcement body for employment rights.


Part 1) One-sided flexibility


In December 2018 the Low Pay Commission (LPC) recommended that Government considers ways to specifically measure the scale of what Matthew Taylor named ‘one-sided flexibility’. The Government is now consulting on measures to tackle one-sided flexibility and aims to identify the detail behind the LPC’s two recommendations regarding a right to reasonable notice of work schedules, and a policy to provide compensation for shifts that are cancelled at short-notice.


Key questions to be addressed are:


  • How are work schedules currently organised or planned, and how are they currently recorded?

  • What would you define as ‘reasonable notice’ of work schedules? How does this work across different industries?

  • What impact would the introduction of the right to a reasonable notice of work schedules have on your business?

  • How do you think a reasonable notice of work schedule would be recorded? What’s the impact of recording work schedules?

  • If a compensation were introduced for shifts or hours which are cancelled at short notice, what would you consider to be a fair amount of compensation?

  • Should all types of employer, across all sectors, be expected to pay compensation?


Part 2) Establishing a new single enforcement body for employment rights


This consultation seeks views on whether establishing a new single enforcement body for employment rights could improve enforcement for workers and create a level playing field for the majority of businesses who are complying with the law.


Key questions to be addressed are:


  • Is the current system effective in enforcing the rights of workers?

  • Would a single enforcement body would be more effective than the current system?

  • What do you think would be the benefits of a single enforcement body?

  • What do you think would be the risks of a single enforcement body?

  • Are there any at risk sectors where you think enforcement of existing regulations could be strengthened to drive up compliance in place of licensing?
