IBE addresses ethical implications of zero hours contracts
With fairness in the workplace a proven way of building trust, the Institute of Business Ethics has issued a new briefing document examining the ethical issues related to staffing arrangements and employment contracts.
Specifically, it looks at the potential ethical implications of the ‘casualisation’ of the workplace, including zero hours, agency contracts, part-time workers and transfers under TUPE. It also provides some examples of good practice which organisations have put in place to ensure consistency in their treatment of all employees.
This briefing is the second in the mini-series related to issues of fairness in the workplace.
Simon Webley, IBE's research director, discusses the briefing with Dan Johnson, IBE's researcher, here.
The briefing is free download from the IBE website here.
