New anti-avoidance measures announced on Zero Hours Contracts.
Workers protected by the new rules will be given the right not to be subjected to a detriment on the grounds that they have worked for another employer. If they believe that they have suffered a detriment, they can complain to the Employment Tribunal and be awarded compensation. The employer may also face civil penalties if the worker’s rights have been breached in particular circumstances.
Just Employment Law can provide guidance and advice on the effective and compliant use of zero-hours contracts. Please contact us for more details.
