Extension Of Ban On Exclusivity Clauses

In 2015, exclusivity clauses were made unenforceable against workers on zero-hour contracts. The government is now proposing to extend the ban on exclusivity clauses for workers whose earnings are below £123 per week (£123 being the Lower Earnings Limit), estimated to be 1.5m workers throughout the UK. That represents about 13 hours’ work per week at minimum wage, so it’s really not a big deal.

According to the press release, legislation for these reforms will be laid before Parliament “later this year”.
