Taylor Review of Modern Employment Practices

LawWorks response to the Call for Evidence by the Taylor Review.

The Independent Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy was commissioned by the Prime Minister in 2016 and led by Matthew Taylor (Chief Executive of the Royal Society of the Arts). The review's brief was to consider how employment practices (including employment rights) need to change in order to keep pace with modern business models. ​The Review has now been published and LawWorks submission to the review has been quoted in the review's final report.

The key issues we called for the review to address were around

  • Establishing an employment rights framework underpinned by legal certainty and fairness in dealing with different types of worker;
  • Greater transparency on rights and obligations for all parties and dissemination of better legal information;
  • Improving access to justice and redress starting by reviewing tribunal fee levels and supporting capacity for employment rights advice;
  • More proactive enforcement of basic rights for example in respect of unpaid wages and defaulted contracts.
