Government assesses all significant new employment regulation on all types of businesses, including micro businesses, through undertaking impact assessments. The Government commissioned Matthew Taylor to conduct an independent review into modern working practices. The review was published in July 2017 and highlighted the strengths of the UK’s flexible labour market relative to other countries. However, the review also proposed new measures the Government should take to improve outcomes for all those participating in the labour market. The Government will respond shortly.
