Moves to crack down on those who break employment law were today greeted as a welcome development by the Law Society.
The Taylor review makes wide-ranging calls to reform employment law including clarifying workplace rights.
Most of us know, roughly, what our rights at work are: that our pay is a certain amount, that we should get sick days and holiday, and can't be arbitrarily fired. But for people working in the 'gig economy' or other less conventional working arrangements, understanding whether you're an employee with all those rights, genuinely self-employed and so must fend for yourself, or that grey "worker" area in between, is complicated.
An independent government inspector to enforce workplace rights is needed to stop poor employers breaking employment laws and exploiting staff, the Law Society of England and Wales said today.
This webinar on 31 May at 12.30 to 1.30pm will explore the significance of Wright v Troy Lucas and the implications for clients of commercial McKenzie friends.
