Good Work Plan in response to Taylor report

Published 7th February 2018

The Government has today published a ‘Good Work plan’ in response to Matthew Taylor’s review, 'Good work: the Taylor review of modern working practices', in which he outlines the “seven principles for good quality work for all”.

Under the Plan, the Government says it will:-

  • introduce a right to request a more stable contract for all workers including zero hour workers;
  • help enforce workers' sick and holiday rights;
    introduce a 'naming and shaming' scheme for employers who don't pay tribunal awards;
  • make sure new and expectant mothers know their rights;
  • ask the Low Pay Commission to consider introducing a higher rate of the national minimum wage for workers on zero hour contracts.

In addition, the Government says it will be seeking views on legislation for:

  • enforcement of Taylor's employment rights recommendations;
  • protecting agency workers;
  • measures to increase transparency in the UK labour market; and, 
  • employment status
