Zero Hours Contracts

26 May 2015: Zero Hours Contracts: From the 26 May 2015, a new section 27A of the Employment Rights Act 1996 states that any provision of a zero-hours contract that prevents a worker from doing work under another contract is unenforceable. This also applies to provisions stating that the employer’s prior consent is required.


A new S.27B ERA allows the Government to make further provision to prevent zero-hours workers being restricted in their ability to work for other employers.


In addition, under the new regulations there will be an increase in the maximum financial penalty for underpayment of the National Minimum Wage to £20,000 per worker.
