Taylor Review Published

The long awaited Taylor Review has been published, with a number of recommendations around zero-hours contracts, employment statuses and changes to piece-rate payments. Matthew Taylor's report, which called for employers to increase the quality of jobs, not just the quantity, potentially signals wide ranging changes to employment law, as it was launched by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Taylor's Review identifies three key challenges for employers and policy makers, including:

  • tackling exploitation and the potential for exploitation at work;
  • increasing clarity in the law and helping people know their rights; and
  • aligning the labour market in the longer term with broader industrial strategy.

The Review argues that zero hours contracts should not be banned, but does recommend that a workers hours should be guaranteed following twelve months of service. It also suggests that the "worker" employment status should be retained, but that it should be renamed "Dependent Contractor" and for the current requirement for someone to perform work personally to be removed.
