Lack of clear information and exclusivity clauses in zero hours contracts can leave employees "feeling vulnerable", the Business Secretary has said.
Vince Cable said Acas' research supported what the Government had found in their review of zero hours contracts:
Whilst zero hours contracts work for some, the use of exclusivity clauses and the lack of clear information can leave employees feeling vulnerable.
That is why I launched a consultation last autumn which looked into the issues of transparency and exclusivity in the use of zero hours contracts, to ensure people are getting a fair deal.
I want to make sure those looking to work flexibly under these types of contracts understand their rights and are not prevented from topping up their income by being tied exclusively to one employer. We will publish our response to the consultation shortly.
