Citizens Advice Sheffield strongly endorses the proposal for a single, publicly prominent enforcement body for employment rights – with the proviso that it must have the necessary powers and resources to do its job effectively.
As a result, we felt we had to respond to the ‘Good Work Plan: Establishing a new single body for employment rights’ consultation.
