Deadline 24th June
Government want to hear organisations’ views on the roles that are being filled by migrant workers, the salaries they are paid and implications of potential changes.
In March 2020, the government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to compile a UK shortage occupation list (SOL), which will primarily focus on occupations at RQF Level 3-5 (medium skill). This is to be reported in September 2020.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has placed businesses in an enormously difficult situation and that organisations that would normally respond to the call for evidence may not currently have capacity to do so.
Therefore, alongside the main call for evidence, they have created options to provide more limited evidence or to register that you would have responded in different circumstances.
The attached call for evidence identifies the sort of information that the MAC will find most helpful to receive during the initial phase of its consideration of the government’s commission, and details of how to submit your evidence.
They are requesting that evidence be submitted using the online form detailed in the call for evidence. This allows the MAC to assess and analyse the information in a structured and methodological way, assessing all information using the same criteria. This is the most effective way for the MAC to consider evidence from stakeholders.
