Employment status and the gig economy
Technology developments and cultural changes have enabled the gig economy to grow to a vast scale. This has had an impact on the degree of protection afforded to gig economy and atypical workers and a number of case rulings and new legislation makes employment status classification a moving feast.
This discussion and case study led workshop explores the established tests for different employment statuses and the different rights they are afforded along with insight into the current and proposed new legislation in this area.
