Zero Hour Contracts Debate - APSCo Responds to Cables Speech

Zero Hour Contracts Debate - APSCo Responds to Cable’s Speech

Following Vince Cable’s keynote speech to the Liberal Party Conference in Glasgow where he reconfirmed that the Government will press on with its review of zero hours, Samantha Hurley, Head of External Relations at The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) says: “While we welcome any attempt to protect vulnerable workers and support the Government’s ambition to better understand the nature of demand in the flexible labour market, we would reiterate that there are occasions where these types of contracts are useful – particularly in the professional education and healthcare sectors.  Consequently while a review of these types of contracts in order to tackle any potential abuse is perfectly reasonable, an outright ban would not, we believe, serve the best interests of a flexible professional labour market.”
