In the Queens’ Speech, we announced we will bring forward an Employment Bill to deliver on a range of Manifesto commitments.

This legislation will make workplaces fairer by introducing new protections for those in the gig economy.

The preparation of an Employment Bill follows recent assessments of modern ways of working. Many of these aspects are complex and so it is only right that we take time to consider how best to achieve change that works for all.

We will bring forward detailed proposals in due course.
