Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation: Good Work Plan – one-sided flexibility, addressing unfair flexible working practices

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Low Pay Commission are seeking views on the proposals made by the Commission, to address the issue of ‘one-sided flexibility’.

The deadline for responses is 11 October 2019.

This issue exists within some parts of the labour market, where employers misuse flexible working arrangements, creating an unpredictability in working hours, income insecurity and a reluctance among workers to assert basic employment rights.

This consultation seeks views on:

  • providing a right to reasonable notice of working hours
  • providing workers with compensation for shifts cancelled without reasonable notice.
