Can we still use zero hour contracts?

Can we still use zero hour contracts?

Yes, zero hour contracts are still permitted but since May 2015 exclusivity clauses i.e. clauses which prevent a worker from working for someone else, have been prohibited and rendered unenforceable.  A legally compliant zero hours contract can be found at:

C10: Contract of employment: casual worker agreement (zero hours)
