    Default BEIS Work of Work Forum

    EDIT: Sorry for the title typo; should be BEIS World of Work Forum

    A group of MPs called the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee are investigating work and employment conditions. You can help them.

    Do you have experience of agency work, being self-employed, working casual hours or working in short term temporary jobs, sometimes called the 'gig economy'?

    Share your views on one, or more, of the following questions:

    · If you’re a casual or agency worker or work on a zero-hours contract, do you feel the balance of benefits between you and your employer is appropriate?
    · Do you work ‘flexible’ hours (for example, you or your employer chooses which hours you work each week)? If so, do you like the flexibility of how you work or does this cause problems for you?
    · Are there general issues around terms and conditions in your work that you’d like to comment on?

    You can post your views on the Committee's forum: Online forum: Future world of work and rights of workers - UK Parliament

    The Committee will produce a report at the end of its investigations and make recommendations for Government action. The Government will then respond.

    Shouldn't IPSE be collecting responses for this?

    And the problem is precisely that we have a Government who listens to respond, not to understand.
    The cynic in me foresees another committee that will produce another report that'll go straight to the shredder eventually...
    I'll pass.

    Not especially. IPSE may choose to feed into it but there's no reason why people shouldn't share their personal thoughts and experiences.

    I suspect the same. It's most likely lip service
