Questions to the Mayor of London – answered on 23rd May 2022.
Do you still intend to have a "charter of best practice for on-demand workers" in place by the end of 2022 and if so, when do you plan to consult on this initiative?
Yes. Work is progressing to develop a charter for good work in the gig, on-demand and platform economy for publication this year. My Economic Fairness team recently completed a phase of research and engagement with workers, platforms, trade unions, specialist employment policy organisations and academics with expertise in gig-work to understand the challenges and needs of workers in more depth.
A draft charter is currently being scoped to which all interested parties will be invited to submit a response in Summer 2022.
