Employment Status

  • Posted

1. The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has published its Employment Status Review (published today, despite the review being dated December 2015).

It sets out the current system of employment status, considers the position of some atypical workers, and then examines the future and possible reforms (without making any recommendations). As it says in the executive summary: "There are a number of options presented but most are highly complicated, would take years to deliver and could create new issues of their own."

2. The Taylor Review, expected to be a little more proactive, is due to be published later this year.

3. Meanwhile, if you fancy having a look, here is the Notice of Appeal in the Uber case (with thanks to Connie Cliff of Gowling WLG, who sent it to me)
