Consultation on extending the ban on exclusivity clauses

Closing date: 26 February 2021

The Government is seeking views on extending the ban on exclusivity clauses, currently banned in zero hours contracts, to include employment contracts where a worker's guaranteed weekly income is less than the lower earnings limit for national insurance purposes. The consultation seeks views on, among other things, whether or not the lower earnings limit is the appropriate threshold, and if not, what alternative threshold should apply.
