There is a "danger" controversial zero-hours contracts, which do not guarantee the employee any hours of paid work, become "the norm", said Shadow Business Secretary, Chuka Umunna.
New evidence highlights that there could be hundreds of thousands more people on zero-hours contracts than previously thought...Flexibility works for some, but the danger today is that too often insecurity at work becomes the norm.
The huge spike in the use of zero-hours contracts has brought increased reports of abuses and bad practice. There should be zero tolerance of such abuse.
That is why Labour has convened this important summit bringing together representatives of employers and employers to consider what action must be taken.
