Modern Employment Review Leeds
The review would like your views on how respond to the rapidly changing world of work so it delivers for ordinary people without damaging the flexibility that allows people to participate in work and which is one of the strengths of our Labour Market.
The Review team have been holding events around the UK in order to speak to employers and individuals who work in sectors like the gig economy, manufacturing and rural economies so we can fully understand the impact of modern working practices and how different labour markets work.
This event will include evidence sessions from a range of invited guests and time for Q&A from the participants and will be chaired by Greg Marsh, Entrepreneur and Investor, and a member of the expert Review panel.
Matthew Taylor, Head of the Review, invites you to take part in his challenge:
“The Prime Minister has asked me to lead an independent review into how employment practices need to change in order to keep pace with modern business models. I want to hear your ideas on how to best respond to the rapidly changing world of work so it delivers for ordinary people while without damaging the flexibility that allows people to participate in work and is one of the strengths of our Labour Market.
“This discussion board has been created to allow as many people as possible to contribute as many ideas as possible and to get involved in the debate.
“The Review team has set up discussion threads for each of the six areas of the Review and created a space where you can post links to interesting reading material to support the discussion.
“I am genuinely interested in your thoughts and ideas and want the discussion to be a wide ranging and constructive one, so I ask that you do not name individual employers when talking about working practices and anything we consider offensive will be removed from the discussion thread.”
Please note that the deadline for the submission of evidence is 17 May 2017
