Article 14 provides that the labour inspectorate will have the power to inspect and monitor the functioning of worker cooperatives, to ensure compliance with all labour standards with regards to all workers dependent on the services of the cooperative, as well as any members using the cooperative to circumvent the law.

Article 14 also prohibits worker cooperatives from acting as gangmasters, temporary work agencies or recruitment agencies of any kind.
