Self-employment and the gig economy

Published on 2 March 2017

The LITRG welcomes the opportunity to respond to this Work and Pensions Committee inquiry. We remain hugely concerned about the current structure of Universal Credit for the self-employed. If major changes are not made to the rules there is a serious risk that those who are already self-employed will be forced to give up their businesses in order to access adequate state support.
