Self-employment and the gig economy
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.
