UK Music launched their manifesto of recommendations  for all parties to help the Music Industry to thrive going forward. It includes recommendations to implement Shared Parental Pay for the self-employed.

“43.5% of those working in the creative sector are self-employed. In the music industry this includes many creators such as musicians, composers, producers, engineers or mixers. Self-employed parents are penalised by not being eligible for shared parental leave and pay. Eligibility for shared parental leave should be changed to support work-life balance amongst self-employed people working within the music industry”
