Zero Hour Contracts

Vince Cable, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, has this morning announced plans to ban exclusivity clauses (which prevent an individual from working for another employer, even when no work is guaranteed) in zero-hour contracts.

The government will consult further on how to prevent evasion of the ban (which, on its face, could be circumvented by offering one-hour contracts rather than zero-hour contracts).

Read the BIS announcement.
