star this property answer text <p>The independent Office for National Statistics (ONS) use the Labour Force Survey (LFS) to provide estimates for the number of people in employment on contracts that do not guarantee minimum hours (known as ‘zero hours’ contracts’). This data is available for the Oct-Dec quarter only for each year from 2010 to 2018 and is set out in the table below.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table: Level and rate of people aged 16 and over on zero-hours contracts October to December each year</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p>UK, not seasonally adjusted</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Percentage of people in employment on a zero-hours contract</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>0.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>1.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>2.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>2.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>2.6</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Source: ONS Labour Force Survey</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>The estimates for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are considered precise</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>ONS advise that the increased media coverage of zero-hours’ contracts arrangements in the latter half of 2013 may have affected the response to this question by raising awareness of this existing type of contractual arrangement. The ONS therefore advise not to compare pre- and post-2013 data.</p><p> </p><p>Data for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and the English regions has been published every six months by ONS for since 2016. However, because the data is drawn from a survey, many of these sub-UK breakdowns are considered too unreliable for practical purposes. Regional data and guidance on its reliability can be found in tab 4 of table EMP17 published here:</p><p><a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/employmentandemployeetypes/datasets/emp17peopleinemploymentonzerohourscontracts/current" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/employmentandemployeetypes/datasets/emp17peopleinemploymentonzerohourscontracts/current</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Both the Government and independent research have identified that zero hours contracts are beneficial for the labour market as they allow flexibility for both employers and individuals. The latest figures show that only 2.4% of the UK’s workforce are on a zero hours contracts because, for that small proportion, that may be the right contract for them.</p><p> </p><p>In the Review of Modern Working Practices, Matthew Taylor said that banning zero hours contracts altogether “would negatively impact many more people than it helped&quot;. We agree with his assessment and have committed to bring forward legislation to introduce the right to request a more predictable and stable contract for all workers, including those on zero hours contracts. This will allow individuals and businesses to strike the right balance between flexibility and job security.</p> more like this
