Campaign for secure self-employment
We are supporting the Citizens Advice Secure self-employment campaign for simpler and more responsive policies that give the growing number of self-employed workers in England & Wales more security and control over everything from their pensions, tax and rights to developing their businesses.
The campaign also aims to reduce “bogus” self-employment. This occurs when employers class staff whose work has all the hallmarks of employment as self-employed, simply to avoid additional employer costs and responsibilities
Sign up to show your support for the five secure self-employment campaign objectives:
Self-employed people should have the same simple systems as employees to encourage them to save for retirement;
Self-employed parents should be better supported to balance family life and work;
The self-employed should not be disadvantaged by planned reforms to income tax and national insurance;
Newly self-employed people should have specialist and flexible welfare support to allow their business time to develop to its full potential;
No employee should be forced into self-employment or wrongly classed as self-employed.
Let us know how self-employment is working for you.
