The LCO encourages comments about and submissions based on this Background Paper and accompanying Consultation Paper with the objective of better understanding the reality of precarious work and the situation of vulnerable workers and of developing responses to difficulties that exist. Responses may be in relation to labour and employment legislation and practices or other areas affecting the lives of vulnerable workers.  

      Additional steps to be completed in this project are as follows: 

·         Creation of a project advisory group;

·         Pro-active consultation of relevant and interested stakeholders;

·         Commissioning of research papers;

·         Preparation of an interim report with recommendations, disseminated for feedback; and

·         Preparation of the final report with recommendations, informed by the previous steps, and subject to approval by the LCO Board of Governors.
