To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, when the Government plans to publish its response to the consultation on Employment Status, published on 7 February 2018.
29 October 2018
The Government is committed to providing greater clarity for businesses and individuals on employment status. As Matthew Taylor identified in his review, this is a complex issue and is one of the major challenges for public policy.
During the Employment Status Consultation period, we held regional and Ministerial roundtable events to engage in depth with over 70 stakeholder organisations, including representatives from the courier and parcel delivery sector, business groups and trade unions. We also received over 160 detailed written responses to the consultation. We are currently analysing the responses and will respond in due course.
