Workers get new rights in overhaul but zero-hours contracts remain  

Recommended Posts

Tinkering at the edges, much like any reforms they make to the housing market. The CONservatives must think we are all stupid. Can't wait to vote them out - the contempt they show for the ordinary person is breathtaking.

It gets to the point where I start to admire their brazen disdain for anyone outside of the landed classes. In their minds they really are born to rule. Still, if subservient idiots vote for them...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-hour_contract

In the United Kingdom, under the National Minimum Wage Act 1998, workers operating under a zero-hour contract on stand-by time, on-call time, and downtime must be paid the national minimum wage for hours worked. Prior to the introduction of the Working Time Regulations 1998 and the National Minimum Wage Regulations 1999 zero-hour contracts were sometimes used to "clock-off" staff during quiet periods while retaining them on site so they could be returned to paid work should the need arise.
