Zero Hours Policy

A type of employment contract known as a "zero hours policy" does not promise an employee a specific number of hours worked each week. All things considered; the business just pays the employee for the hours they really work. Employers in industries with fluctuating demand, for example, that require flexibility in their staffing levels might find this kind of contract useful.

Zero hours agreements can offer adaptability to the two bosses and workers. Employees are free to work as much or as little as they want, and employers can adjust their staffing levels as needed without incurring unnecessary costs. However, it has been argued that employees on zero-hour contracts suffer from a lack of job security and regular income. Minimum pay requirements and restrictions on the use of exclusivity clauses are two examples of regulations that are in place to safeguard employees on zero-hour contracts in some countries.
