PM promises overhaul of gig economy workers' rights
As part of a package of measures to overhaul employment laws, Prime Minister (PM) Theresa May plans to end a legal loophole that allows companies to pay agency workers less than full-time staff for doing the same job. Ministers also plan to explore new powers to impose fines on companies that break the rules on agency worker regulations by failing to give staff holiday or sick pay, and demanding a payslip for all workers.https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/nov/08/gig-economy-workers-rights-to-be-given-boost-in-overhaul
