HR reacts to 'wishy-washy' Taylor Review

The much-anticipated review of employment practices, overseen by Matthew Taylor, has had somewhat of a cautious reception from the HR world. Looking into issues within the gig-economy, including worker’s rights and general status, the review recommends that “firms which control and supervise their workers” should really pay “a range of benefits, including National Insurance”. However, this is by no means laying down regulation for them to do so.

Instead, a new worker status has been recommended – the “dependant contractor”, which affords workers more protection.
