Taylor review – key recommendations

In October 2016, the government commissioned a report by Mathew Taylor (Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Arts) into how employment practices may need to be revised as a consequence of developments in the labour market and modern business models. The Taylor Review report has now been published and its recommendations include wide-ranging changes to employment law and practices. Some of the key elements are summarised below.

The Government does not have the benefit of a majority in the House of Commons so it may struggle to secure any changes should it agree with the recommendations in the first place. Furthermore, any proposed new legislation will be subject to a consultation process so there is likely to be a significant delay before we see any changes to the law. We will keep you updated with any developments.
