There are also a number of potential legislative changes that may come into practice from the Good Work Plan, we have highlighted things to watch out for in our below blog.

Further likely legislation includes a definition of umbrella companies, legislation to clarify and align employment and tax status, the right to request a more stable and predictable contract and recommendations to tackle ‘one-sided flexibility'.

The government has promised to work closely with business, employers and those representing them to implement the changes and we plan to represent the interests of our members to ensure that implementation of any legislation is fit for purpose.
