Event: Unpaid Britain Project Report Launch
Following the publication in June of Unpaid Britain’s interim report on unpaid wages, the project’s final report will be launched on 30th November from 9am to 1pm at an event at Conway Hall in Central London.
Key elements of this report will be presented, showing the extent of non-payment, strategies deployed by some employers to withhold wages, the cost to unpaid workers and to the state, and evaluation of the means available for recovering unpaid sums. An audience of workers, union representatives, employers, NGOs, regulators, policy makers and academics will be invited to consider and respond to a range of recommendations aimed at combating unpaid wages. They will hear keynote addresses from the newly-appointed Director of Labour Market Enforcement (Sir David Metcalf) and a leading trade unionist, and testimony from some of those directly involved in cases.
