On 11 January 2016 individuals on zero hours contracts were finally given a legal remedy where their employer penalises them for breaching an (unenforceable) exclusivity term in their contract. (Exclusivity clauses in such contracts were made unenforceable on 26 May 2015.) Dismissed employees will be able to claim automatically unfair dismissal, without a minimum service requirement, while all workers will also be able to bring a detriment claim. Both will be subject to Acas early conciliation rules.
