Gig economy on radio 4 (Who Speaks for the Workers?)

Gig economy radio programme

Yesterday BBC Radio 4 featured a 30 minute programme: ‘Who Speaks for the Workers?’

The show posed some interesting questions about the role of unions in the gig-economy, whether Government should directly enforce employment rights (think employment law inspectors a bit like HMRC tax inspectors). It also covers the impact of employment tribunal fees and how the current system fails many lower paid workers, with comment from Jason Moyer-Lee, the General Secretary of the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain.

Employment Solicitor magazine thinks its worth a listen if you’re interested in the gig economy.
