Zero hours exclusivity ban and plans for codes of practice

04 September 2014 #Employment

The government has launched a consultation on its proposed exclusivity ban in zero hours contracts. It also seeks views on penalties and remedies. The results of the consultation will be used to determine the necessity for and scope of further regulations to deal with avoidance of an exclusivity ban, when it comes into force. The consultation will close on 3 November 2014.

The government has also announced plans to develop sector-specific codes of practice on the fair use of zero hours contracts. This is expected to include guidance on recommended best practice for providing and cancelling work and how to calculate accrued benefits.
