This research aims to:
• generate up-to-date insight into how devolution in England, Wales and Scotland has affected the realisation of improved employment standards.
• identify key opportunities and constraints to furthering employment standards and decent work through devolved authorities.

It sets out the powers relating to employment standards and collective bargaining held by devolved authorities (e.g., local, combined, regional and national [England, Scotland, and Wales]). The starting point is that jurisdiction over employment rights (collective and individual), health and safety at work and aspects of workplace training are reserved to the UK government.
