Tabled 29 January 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House commends successful businessman Julian Richer for launching the Zero Hours Justice campaign to provide advice and legal support for workers forced to work on a zero hours basis; believes that good employers recognise that their staff deserve financial security and the ability budget effectively from week to week; notes that responsible employers have no difficulty in offering workers the option of contracts which offer them a guaranteed minimum number of paid hours each week; is concerned that the use of zero hours contracts can deter workers from raising serious abuses in the workplace including bullying, sexual harassment and health and safety breaches; and calls on all public bodies to eliminate the use of exploitative zero hours contracts, both for directly-employed and privately-contracted workers.
