Centre for Law at Work Exploratory Workshop 'Employment Status in the Gig Economy'

5 April 2019, 1.00 PM - 5 April 2019, 7.00 PM

Lady Hale Moot Court, 8-10 Berkeley Square

The Centre for Law at Work will be hosting an exploratory workshop on 'Employment Status in the Gig Economy: Courts and Legislation'.

The programme consists of the following panel discussions: ‘A new statutory definition for the worker category’; 'Case Law on employment status: recent developments in Deliveroo and Uber’; 'Tax and employment status’, and ‘Grassroots organising in the gig economy: Protest and Resistance’.

Each responds to new developments in this rapidly changing field of study and could be the focus of a smaller project or together these strands could form part of a larger research grant to the AHRC/ESRC or the Leverhulme Trust.

The format of each panel will be discursive - speakers to share their thoughts, and then the chair will open up key themes for discussion by the audience consisting of a mix of students, academics and policy makers. The final panel will consist of comments and observations from the Centre’s current six advisory board members.

A fabulous cohort of speakers from Oxford will also be joining us, including Abi Adams, Anne Davies, Judith Freedman and Mark Freedland. Sandy Fredman will be giving the evening keynote address.
