Self-employment gig economy


The year 2018 will see a storm brewing around the employment status of workers in the UK. This follows 2017’s appeal from Uber, directly to the Supreme Court, to try to overturn an earlier Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) which found that its drivers are, in fact, ‘workers’.

Work and Pensions Committee continues to call witnesses to discuss  self-employment and the gig economy. The Committee took evidence from, among other people, Victoria Todd of the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG).
