Taylor Review recommends access to holiday and sick pay for some self-employed

The recently published review of modern working practices in the UK has recommended that some workers, currently classified as self-employed, should get certain benefits like sick and holiday pay.

The Taylor Review, however, did not recommend these benefits for all self-employed workers.

The report comes after research by cloud accountancy software company FreeAgent and the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA) found that sick pay was top of the wish list for freelancers and microbusiness owners.
