Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill – Response to Public Bill Committee Call for Evidence

November, 2022

In this response to the Public Bill Committee call for evidence on the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill, members of the Labour Exploitation Advisory Group (LEAG), together with the Anti-Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit (ATLEU) and Hope for Justice outline their serious concerns about the impact of the Bill on the UK’s efforts to tackle labour exploitation and the welfare of low-paid and precarious workers, in particular through weakening of key EU-derived employment rights, without proper consultation or scrutiny.
