Do you have any rights if you're self employed?

The number of people in the UK who are self-employed may be higher than you think.

According to official government figures published this month the number of self-employed workers increased by 25,000 to 4.81 million between July and September.

That’s 15% of all workers, or almost one in six.

If you work in the gig economy you’re probably self-employed.

A whole lot more people were designated self-employed this week in a landmark legal case.

Deliveroo riders have been ruled self-employed by labour law body the Central Arbitration Committee.

The Independent Workers Union of Great Britain had been fighting for the riders to get workers’ rights, such as holiday pay, the minimum wage and pensions contributions.

Defeat means they’re left with practically none.
