ARC confirms LME director to speak at May meeting
The Association of Recruitment Consultancies (ARC) has confirmed that Sir David Metcalf, director of Labour Market Enforcement (LME), will be the keynote speaker at its network meeting, on 9th May between 15.00 and 17.30 at the CBI headquarters in London.
John Randall, ARC’s communications and engagement manager, said, “As the role of LME director is to bring better focus and co-ordination to the enforcement of labour market legislation, this is a must attend event for recruiters.”
The LME director has overarching responsibility for setting the strategic direction of the three labour market enforcement bodies – HMRC National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage, Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority and the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate.
Randall added, “To tie in with theme of labour enforcement, there will be a presentation on complying with ID checks and how recruitment businesses can use electronic scanning to protect their business from illegal applicants, by Gavin Burton, strategic development director at TrustID.
“In addition, there will be a discussion on the government’s four ongoing consultations in response to the Matthew Taylor report. These cover – employment status, increasing transparency in the UK labour market, enforcement of employment rights and agency workers recommendations.
Randall concludes, “We have a comprehensive programme of presentations and discussions and anticipate a high demand from recruiters wishing to attend, so I would advise early booking, to avoid disappointment.”
