APSCo responds to review into zero hours contracts

Responding to the news that the business secretary Vince Cable has ordered a review into & lsquo;zero hours’ contracts, Samantha Hurley, Head of External Relations at APSCo says:

“Vince Cable is right to look into zero-hours contracts and we look forward to seeing his conclusions. According to the British Labour Force Survey, the number of people on these types of contracts rose by 25 per cent in 2012. An increase in flexible working per se should not be seen in a negative light, but it’s crucial that we find a balance between the need for flexibility and fairness for vulnerable workers.

“APSCo particularly welcomes the Government’s ambition to better understand the nature of demand in the flexible labour market. We have long called for more work in this area and we expect the output will be a valuable asset for policy making on employment.”
