Good work: the Taylor review of modern working practices

Examines the implications of new forms of working practice for worker rights and responsibilities and employer freedoms and obligations. Describes the approach to the review, outlining seven principles to guide the development of fair and decent work practices. Considers the factors that make up 'quality work', including wages and working conditions. Looks at the characteristics of the labour market and key trends and changes. Considers the way in which current employment protection works, and the operation of labour market flexibility. Identifies the ways in which employers can improve workforce relations. Looks at the enforcement of the current legal framework, and the role of the tax system in influencing working practices. Indicates the ways in which central government can better support the self-employed, enabling people to develop skills to progress to better quality work and ensure lasting change.
