On the 31 July I informed you of the appointment of the Fair Work Commission, Chaired by Professor Linda Dickens.  

The Terms of Reference of the Commission are:

“On the basis of evidence and analysis the Commission is to make recommendations to promote and encourage fair work in Wales.  

The Commission will develop indicators and measures of fair work and Identify data sources to help monitor progress. It will consider whether measures to promote fair work currently available to the Welsh government could be taken further and identify what new or additional steps might be taken, including new legislation, and make recommendations.

This statement is to draw your attention to the Fair Work Commission’s call for evidence which was launched on the 12 October.  The call is being made via the Fair Work Commission website at and will be open until 19 November 2018.  

The call for evidence is aimed at a wide range of organisations and individuals across the public, private and third sectors.  The Commission wishes to tap into a wide range of experience, views and research relevant to the Fair Work Commission’s terms of reference.  It is not a consultation on developed proposals but rather an early stage request for input to help the Commission formulate its proposals and shape the recommendations it will make to Welsh Ministers.

The Commission will also be writing to Assembly Committee Chairs as part of the call for evidence.
