Fiona Rushforth, senior associate at law firm Wedlake Bell, joins us to discuss the key principles and recommendations of Matthew Taylor's review of modern employment practices. We look at what this review means for employers and in particular, we discuss the following recommendations: the renaming of worker status to dependent contractor status; changes to the worker status test; closing the loophole that allows agency workers to be paid less than employees doing the same job; the calculation of pay in the gig economy; the payment of a higher national minimum wage for non-guaranteed hours in a contract; and tribunal fees and the enforcement process for awards. Presenter Laura Merrylees is joined by Fiona Rushforth.
