Zero Hours contracts and exclusivity clauses
As of today, the 26th May 2015, exclusivity clauses in zero hours contracts have been banned. This means that if you give people such contracts, you cannot stop them working elsewhere.
The eagle eyed among you may feel that this is old news, as certain politicians had said it was already done. It wasn’t, but now it is. The order is behind the following link: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/1329/contents/made
The order also contains other measures such as increasing fines for those that fail to pay the minimum wage from £20,000 per notice (which could cover any number of workers) to £20,000 per worker.
