This concluding chapter assesses the extent to which non-standard workers have been embraced by UK labour law. It recognises that their integration has gained momentum across the period in office of the New Labour government. The chapter cautions, however, against understanding the various ‘re-regulatory’ measures introduced as a comprehensive programme that has significantly reoriented labour law's treatment of non-standard work. It also highlights the differences in the regulation of each of the forms of non-standard work examined in the book, and highlights the inconsistencies and limitations of the approaches adopted. It ends by suggesting a number of themes that underlie the inchoate nature of the reforms to the regulation of non-standard work.

Keywords:   non-standard, atypical, labour market flexibility, fragmentation, work and family
