Workers (Rights and Definitions) Bill


Ongoing requirement


The Workers (Rights and Definitions) Bill aims to protect workers against exploitation by employers using zero-hour contracts and false ‘self-employment’.


The Workers (Rights and Definition) Bill is a private members’ bill introduced by Chris Stephens of the SNP.


The aim of the bill is to relieve the current difference between ‘workers’ and ‘employees’ and introduce a single status for the purpose of employment rights and employer responsibilities. This is intended to protect workers from the vagaries of the ‘gig economy’ by regulating false ‘self-employment’ and casual employment in a simpler way.  The bill is in its second reading in the Commons.
