We are already seeing the effects of Covid-19 on work. We know that SME’s and the self-employed have been especially badly effected and, many argue, badly neglected. Despite this, it appears, many displaced employees are turning to self-employment and small business. In – Work in Challenging and Uncertain Times 2020, Patricia Leighton and Tui McKeown explore many work issues, drawing on a wide range of data sources and disciplines. Work is already subject to many, often deep seated, problems and fault lines including and often ineffective regulatory frame work. The book though also explores how work experience can be improved.
