Through the Good Work Plan we have committed to legislate on a range of areas to enhance workers’ rights, including to ensure that all tips left to workers go to them in full.

It is important that we get this right and we have been working closely with stakeholders and across Government to prepare this legislation. We are making good progress and will lay measures to implement the Good Work Plan in Parliament as soon as possible.

The Good Work Plan set out an ambitious programme to take forward 51 of the 53 recommendations made in the Taylor Review. We have already implemented key commitments, with Parliament recently passing secondary legislation we brought forward to increase workers’ rights and protections, and improve transparency for workers, from day one.
