REC supports more joined-up enforcement in recruitment

 
REC supports more joined-up enforcement in recruitment
 
The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has today written to support the Governments proposals to allow greater sharing of information between Government enforcement agencies such as the Employment Agency Standards inspectorate, National Minimum Wage team and the Health and Safety Executive.
 
Commenting on the proposal, Fola Tayo, the RECs Head of Professional Standards said: "Sharing information between different parties inspecting recruitment agencies is a move in the right direction.  It is only right that if an inspection from the Employment Agency Standards team finds minimum wage abuses, these concerns are then passed on to that enforcement team.  The REC will be looking for ways to work even more closely with the Department for Business as we move forward."
 
The REC has inspected over 500 members since putting in place a team of assessment officers in 2006.
 
Anne Fairweather, the RECs Head of Public Policy, continued "The REC is interested to see how inspection of our members by a variety of bodies can be made more effective.  We will be consulting members on the regulatory regime for the recruitment sector in the New Year.  As public spending tightens, we need to ensure that inspection and enforcement of the law in our industry is both proportionate and effective."
