New guidance: Government guidance on zero hour contracts

Wednesday 11th November 2015

Employers will welcome a new guide on zero hours contracts from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).


The new guide, Zero hours contracts: guidance for employers, was published on 15 October. It explains what zero hours contracts are, what employment rights apply, and when their use is appropriate and inappropriate.


The guide also discusses alternatives, and gives best practice examples. Finally, it discusses exclusivity clauses, purporting to restrict an employee from working for anyone else while the contract subsists.
