Tax, benefits and labour law – what’s the right answer for workers in the gig economy?
Speakers: Stuart Adam, Colin Ben-Nathan, Meredith McCammond and Jeremias Prassl
The speakers will discuss the tax position of workers in zero hours contacts and in the gig economy, especially the uneven playing field around employment and self- employment and the differences in outcomes for these workers regarding tax, NICs, pensions and welfare benefits. They will also look at the employment/self-employment status boundaries, whether moving them would be beneficial, and the question of the introduction and design of possible third or intermediate status categories.
Stuart Adam is a Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, who works in the Direct Tax and Welfare sector. He has extensive experience in the policy and design of the tax and benefit system.
Colin Ben-Nathan is a director at KPMG in the UK. He advises clients on the structuring and taxation of employee remuneration packages, as well as employee tax issues arising on transactions and retirement benefit arrangements.
Meredith McCammond is a Technical Officer for the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group of The Chartered Institute of Taxation. Her areas of interest include the gig economy, agency workers and the National Minimum Wage.
Jeremias Prassl is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford. Jeremias is also the author of Humans as a Service (OUP 2018), which examines the opportunities and threats of work in the gig economy across the globe.
