Covid-19: When can we return to work?

We now have the Government’s route map to get the country back to normal from Covid-19 with the publication of its Spring Response. On 22nd February, The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced the plans to start to open up the economy.

Uber Alles – The End of The Road!

It cannot have escaped your notice that Uber recently lost its latest appeal case in the UK’s Supreme court and the Judge confirmed earlier findings that its drivers were not self-employed but were “workers” for the purposes of employment law.
