what is a self employed worker?
here is the answer from the general secretary of the IWGB a DOCTOR of ECONOMICS and the leading expert in the gig economy
So Matthew Taylor, Theresa May’s appointee to lead an inquiry into the so-called “gig economy”, has called for employment rights for the self-employed. You might expect that we at Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB), many of whose members work in the so-called gig economy to be delighted. And yes, employment rights should certainly be improved, but a category of self-employed worker who carries their work out as part of someone else’s business and as such has employment rights already exists. It’s called a worker (or limb (b) worker, to use the legal term).
