SIR - It isn’t just insecure work and low pay that some workers have to endure these days.

The Resolution Foundation has revealed that five per cent of working people have no entitlement to paid holidays and 10 per cent don’t even receive a payslip from their employer.

This, along with the fact that, in the so-called ‘gig economy’ many workers are increasingly classified as ‘self-employed’, so that their employer can avoid their proper responsibilities to their workforce such as eg statutory sick pay and other reasonable entitlements. Isn’t it time the ‘gig’ was up for such employers?
