The spotlight has turned in recent weeks to the gig economy and how ‘workers’ are treated. In February, the SMB employment team commented on the Supreme Court ruling against Uber and how its implications could totally recognise the gig economy.

Stephen Shotnes supported the TBJI on their investigation which appears ahead of Deliveroo’s anticipated £8.8 billion stock market flotation. Stephen said: “I am very pleased to have assisted TBIJ on their  important investigation  into the financial realities of life in the gig economy for many Deliveroo drivers.”

The investigation was reported in the Mirror and ITV and the story was also picked up by various other media outlets in the UK and overseas. Full details of the investigation can be read here.
