Violence and abuse towards retail workers


This inquiry will examine barriers to the reporting of incidents of violence or abuse and victim satisfaction with the action taken by police and employers after an incident is reported. It will also explore whether a new offence of aggravated assaults against retail workers is required, and the adequacy of action taken by the Government on this issue following its 2019 call for evidence.

As part of this inquiry, the Committee has also launched a public survey to give individuals who have experienced these incidents the opportunity to explain what happened after an incident was reported. The survey will be open until Friday 22 January 2021 and can be found here.
