Here in the UK we are currently (December 2022) experiencing a cost of living crisis which is almost certainly exacerbated by the recent pandemic. Today we’re chatting to employment lawyer Cristian Ley about how attitudes towards self-employment have changed in recent years, the impact of politics, and how that is now impacting on the cost of living crisis.
We’re talking about:
- What’s changed within big infrastructure projects that are so important to the economy;
- The practical impact of IR35 and off-payroll working legislation;
- Changes within supply chains;
- Workforce changes;
- The government’s direction of travel regarding self-employment.
This is a fascinating discussion about why self-employment is so important to the economy, what has changed recently, and why that affects us all.
