FOI Request - Zero Hours Contracts
I would like to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
Please would you disclose:
1. The number of staff you employed on 26th June 2014 on zero hours contracts
1. Figures at 27/06/14 show there are currently 827 people employed on a zero hours contract. “Zero hours” contract means “relief”. There is no obligation on either the Council to offer hours nor the individual to accept any offer of hours. In addition, the Council does not operate “exclusivity” clauses.
