Stronger Worker Protections

Labour want to end zero-hours contracts and ensure workers have contracts reflecting their usual hours. They want to give day-one rights to parental and sick leave and make it easier to challenge unfair dismissal. Labour also aims to simplify job categories, focusing on just workers and the self-employed. Redundancy rights may be improved to protect whistleblowers better, and support self-employed workers with written contracts and measures against late payments. The practice of "fire and rehire" will be reformed to protect workers from abuse.
