This landmark report on UK’s working practices reviews the changing landscape of employment in that country and makes a series of recommendation in support of decent work.

The recommendations in the report by Matthew Taylor focus on┬áthree key challenges: 1) tackling exploitation and the potential for exploitation at work; 2) increasing clarity in the law and helping people know and exercise their rights; and 3) aligning the incentives driving the nature of our labour market with UK’s modern industrial strategy and broader national objectives.

The report makes several explicit recommendations aimed at sharing economy businesses like Uber and Deliveroo, which include sick pay and holiday leave for platform workers. In 2016, a UK employment tribunal ruled that Uber drivers are not self-employed and should be granted basic employee rights, including a national minimum wage, paid holiday, and sick pay.
