In this Law Society Podcast, we discuss the findings of Matthew Taylor's far-reaching review of modern employment practices, commissioned by the Prime Minister Theresa May.
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.
Nick Denys talks to Nigel Mackay and Annie Powell, who ran the case for the drivers, about the clash between employment law and technology platforms.
This practice note offers advice on that right and suggests forms of flexible working that practices may wish to consider.
