The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) will move to replace current legislation governing the employment and recruitment services industries and create a new framework reducing “some of the burden on business”.The new framework will “focus on areas where work-seekers are most at risk of exploitation”, today’s government response to ‘Reforming the regulatory framework for the recruitment sector’, available online, announces.

A further short consultation on draft legislation will be carried out once that legislation is prepared, although a BIS spokesperson tells Recruiter there is no timetable for this yet. This comes after the recruitment industry was asked to give its views for a consultation on the future of the industry from BIS, which closed on 11 April. Changes to the government’s enforcement strategy are also due.
