Employees of the Agency and those in the & # 39; gig economy & # 39; receive extra protection and improved rights according to new workplace laws.
The government describes the measures as the largest package of reforms in the workplace for more than 20 years and says they are needed to meet the changing world of work. The legislation to introduce them will be submitted next year.
Changes mean that employers are banned from taking a number of tips to employees for a good service.

A loophole that allows agency workers to be accepted at cheaper rates than regular colleagues will be closed. Companies will be excluded from & # 39; misclassifying & # 39; employees like & # 39; self-employed & # 39 ;, while they control every aspect of their job.
All employees receive a full explanation of their rights by appointment. This also includes eligibility for sick leave and wages.
As expected, the government has opposed calls to ban zero-hour contracts, but all employees have the right to ask for a more stable contract & # 39;
