Self-employment & the gig economy


The Work & Pensions Committee have published their report following a review of the increasing numbers of self-employed workers in the gig economy (which has arrived shortly before the Taylor Review on Modern Employment practices is expected).

The reports finds that the current categories of workers are inadequate in our changing economy, which they highlight is also over-burdened by bogus self-employment. Consequently, the report recommends that a new presumption of worker status (rather than self-employed) is introduced and that the National Insurance contributions of employees and self-employed should be equalised.
