Migrant Workers and Vulnerable Employment: A Review of Existing Data COMPAS Communications


The aim of the research was to investigate the extent of and conditions relating to vulnerable employment for migrant workers by comparing data from smaller‐scale regional/local datasets with data from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the Workers’ Registration Scheme (WRS). The indicators of vulnerable employment chosen for this study were: pay, hours, insecurity and accommodation. The geographical focus in the smaller‐scale datasets was two local areas: Birmingham and the West Midlands, and parts of the East of England and East Midlands including counties such as Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.
