Consultation on measures to address one-sided flexibility

Close date: 11 October 2019

The Government consults on proposals to address the issue of "one-sided flexibility" in flexible working practices. The consultation is in response to recommendations by the Low Pay Commission to address the misuse of flexible working arrangements by some employers, which creates an unpredictability in working hours, income insecurity and a reluctance among workers to assert basic employment rights. It seeks views on providing a right to reasonable notice of working hours and providing workers with compensation for shifts cancelled without reasonable notice.
