ZERO HOURS CONTRACTS CONSULTATION: CLOSING LOOPHOLES
After deciding not to ban the use of zero hours contracts altogether, the government is holding a further consultation regarding its proposal to ban zero hours contracts that seek to prevent workers from working for other employers. The government is concerned that some employers will seek to circumvent the ban by, for instances, guaranteeing just a couple of hours’ work a week.
The consultation is also seeking views on establishing codes of practice to promote the correct use of these contracts which are not currently covered by legislation.
This further consultation is open until 3 November and can be access via the government’s website.
