Free Webinar for Employers: Changes to Worker Status Following Uber Ruling
Ahead of our half day briefing, this FREE webinar will ensure employers of "gig workers" understand the huge implications of Uber's long-running historic court battle. The high court ruling means your independent contractors could now be now entitled to basic employment rights.

UK organisations work with over 1.3 million "gig workers": independent contractors, online platform workers, contract firm workers, on-call workers, and temporary workers. Where now classed as "workers" rather than self-employed contractors, they are entitled to:

* Paid sick leave
* Paid holiday
* Pensions
* National minimum wage
* The right to not work more than 48 hours on average per week

Why attend this FREE webinar?

* Hear from an outstanding speaker line-up, including the lawyer who represented the original lead claimants of the case; the author of the independent "Taylor Review" of modern working practices; the current National Officer of the GMB Union; IR35's most prominent thought leader and the author of 'CEST explained'
* Understand the far-reaching consequences of the ruling, especially in the light of Brexit and Covid-19
* Know how to determine a worker’s status
* Grasp the implications to current business models
* Examine the need to clarify UK employment status
* Find out what crucial steps UK employers need to take right now to ensure their Modern * Slavery Statement is workable
* Mitigate against similar claims and reputational risks

This FREE webinar features a 20 minute legal plenary outlining the implications for employers of "gig workers", and a 30 minute panel where experts in this area will debate the future of online platform work such as Handy, Deliveroo, Upwork and other zero hours and self-employment trends in the context of the way in which the court framed the Uber decision. We will also examine the need to clarify UK employment status.
