Matthew Taylor took the recommendations made in Julie Deane’s review into account when he carried his own Review of Modern Employment Practices, commissioned by my rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 1st October 2016. Mr Taylor’s review considered the implications of new forms of work, driven by digital platforms, for employee rights and responsibilities, employer freedoms and obligations, and our existing regulatory framework surrounding employment.

The Government published its response to the review on 7 February 2018, including its Good Work Plan for taking forward the recommendations on employment policy and legislation.
