For that reason, developments in Employment Law are often reported on by the media as stories about Employment Law impact on all of our lives, Paul has recently spoken to The Times, City AM, The Financial Times and the BBC. Paul has also previously been invited to a Whitehall Think-Tank about agency worker rights which is a hot topic in the age of the Gig Economy, Uber and Deliveroo.
