This Government has committed not to roll back workers’ rights when we leave the European Union (EU). This commitment stands regardless of whether there is a Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU or not, and irrespective of where the rights originated. The EU (Withdrawal) Act ensures that existing rights are retained in UK law when the UK leaves the EU.
We are committed to ensuring everyone is treated fairly at work. In order to ensure our legal framework keeps pace with the changing world of work, and workers have access to the rights they deserve, the Prime Minister commissioned Matthew Taylor to carry out an independent review of modern working practices in the UK. We responded to the review in February 2018, committing to firm action and future legislation and launched four consultations on the detail. We are currently considering the responses and will respond in due course.
