Hi,

Sanfield promised to appoint a special group to follow up on the needs of each family and to issue the workers' pay records within a week for the families to pursue compensation.

What is the difference between "follow up on sth" and "follow up sth"?

Can I remove "on"?

Thanks in advance

What is the difference between "follow up on sth" and "follow up sth"? No difference is usually intended.

Can I remove "on"? Yes. But 'on' is very commonly used, especially in informal spoken English.
