Zero Hours Contracts - Update June 2014


25 / 6 / 2014 11.20am

The Government has today announced plans to ban exclusivity clauses in zero hours contracts.

Today's announcement follows a consultation by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills into zero hours contracts. The consultation, which we responded to on behalf of employers in the NHS, was launched in December 2013, and closed in March 2014.  

In future, it is the Government's intention that employees on zero hours contracts will have the freedom to find work with more than one employer.

A full outline of the new plans are available on the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills website. 

More information on the use of zero hours contracts in the NHS and our response to the consultation can be found on our recruitment webpages.
