This week on 1624 we look at zero hour contracts and the gig economy, with interviews from Daniel Tomlinson at the Resolution Foundation, Professor of Labour Economics Stanley Siebert, Lawyer and member of the Taylor Review Diane Nicol as well as CEO of Prism and COO of Professional Passport Crawford Temple. We focused on the rise of zero hour contracts, their advantages and disadvantages, the 'Taylor Review on Modern Working Practices', Uber's licence, productivity, employment and tax law; specifically how they possibly don't encourage positive employment practices.
