The legal classification of labour is under increasing pressure: different ways of
working from the growth of self-employment to the rise of the on-demand economy no longer fit into our established structures of employment and tax law, and
challenge the fundamental assumptions on which the pension and social security
system are built. A series of official reviews have been tasked with resolving the
resulting problems, albeit sometimes from narrow perspectives.
In this project, Judith Freedman, Jeremias Prassl and I are bringing together academics, practitioners and Government departments to make progress on tackling this important, yet difficult issue.
