Our Employment associate, Esyllt Green, has been featured in the Telegraph advising employers on issues regarding zero-hour contracts

...In fact, employees on zero-hours contracts have many of the same rights as employees on permanent contracts. "Any business wanting to use these contracts must remember that workers under [them] still have the right to rest breaks, annual leave accrual, sick pay and national minimum or living wage," adds Esyllt Green, employment lawyer at Capital Law.

"They also have the same discrimination rights – and their contract must not contain any exclusivity clauses that would prohibit them from doing any other work elsewhere.”
