Employment Law Legislation Update - June 2015

Employment law solicitor Natalie Ruane looks at the latest legislation updates for June 2015.

From the beginning of this month (June 2015) clauses in zero hours contracts which prevent zero hours workers from performing other work, or working for other employers, without the employer’s consent are unenforceable.

Employees who think that their employers are in breach of this new legislation will have the right to seek compensation in the Employment Tribunal.

Anyone using zero hours contracts should check those contracts and should be looking to delete any exclusivity provisions. Employers who want advice as to how, if at all, they are affected by this change in the law should contact Natalie Ruane at Burnetts on 01228 552222 or at nr@burnetts.co.uk.
