What defines a worker in the express sector ? Help answer the Government's Taylor review May 2nd

The express sector must be heard; IOC have called a Heads of Industry meeting for the afternoon of May 2nd in the City of London.

Fellows are asked to set their diary for May and help answer the question: What defines a worker in the express sector?

IoC to undertake an Independent Review and submit an IoC Members' Finding report to the Taylor Review


The Taylor review is to consider how employment practices need to change in order to keep pace with modern business models. The review will consider the implications of new forms of work, driven by digital platforms, for employee rights and responsibilities, employer freedoms and obligations, and our existing regulatory framework surrounding employment.

15% of those working in the UK’s labour market now self-employed. A great proportion of IoC members operate business models that may engage with independent workers or those that could be deemed to work within the ‘gig economy'– short-term, temporary engagement  that is increasingly sought by people through mobile phone apps & other platforms when they want to work. These roles can include driving and delivery.

IoC  - Independent Review Approach

An online survey will be launched week commencing 24th April to all IoC members. In addition, an option will be provided to members for a telephone interview if there are any of the Taylor Review themes (6 themes - detail after Read More) that you want to discuss / capture your views on in more detail.

IoC will also be attending multiple Taylor Review consultation events prior to co-ordinating a final submission report to the Review on our members' response to the key themes of the Taylor Report.

Please take the time for you, or a nominated member of your organisation, to complete the survey or get in contact to arrange a telephone interview with one of the IoC Taylor Review Team.

The IOC will also be holding a Heads of Industry round table meeting on the afternoon of May 2nd in the City of London, call Tracey Worth for your place.

The IoC report will be submitted prior to the 17th May so do not miss your chance to be heard!
