Who wouldn't fancy a job with zero hours? Most of us know a few people who even turn up and deliver just that! The good news is that there have been a lot of these contracts around. The bad is that they often come with matching pay. Such Zero hours contracts became a hot topic in the last general election. More recently we saw a ban on adding exclusivity clauses to these contracts which prevent unpaid workers from working elsewhere. Everyman's decision to turn away from these contracts without further legislation is progressive. They will be applauded for abandoning the argument that these contracts have real benefits for workers. Given the very public problems of Sports Direct they will not be the last to do so. From a legal perspective these contracts can be permissible but for once the government really can't complain about the free market regulating itself. From a publicity perspective the contracts are toxic. Perhaps their continued use is kamikaze....
