The ILO has no influence at national level. It is entirely up to the national government how it collects data.
ILO is not compulsory but even then ONS was wrong.

Greater attention was paid to a broader measure of unemployment based on criteria laid down by the International Labour Organisation. This second method states that a person is unemployed if he or she doesn’t have a job, has looked for work in the past four weeks and can start within a fortnight. This methodology tops up the claimant count with another 735,000 people giving a total of just over 1.5m.

Fiddling and fiddling. Nobody else uses ZHC and fixed minimum contracts just the UK.
