Zero hours contracts: is the UK "the odd one out"?


Not all have an explicit ban, but it’s correct that most EU countries outlaw these contracts, heavily restrict them, or don’t see them widely used. The UK is one of around half a dozen European countries where zero hours contracts are both legal and fairly common.

“Zero hours contracts are not allowed in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland and Spain. It seems we’re the odd one out.”

Jeremy Corbyn, 16 June 2016

The ones where it is allowed are not worth talking about or maybe they are a good comparison to the UK.
