A Terrible Place To Work

Sports Direct have yet again been in the news this time it was The Labour leader who has attacked chain Sports Direct for being "a terrible place to work" because of its high use of zero-hours contracts. Ed Miliband said: "Zero-hours contracts are the way Sports Direct employs the vast majority of its workforce - 17,000 out of its 20,000 workers."Zero-hours contracts allow employers to hire staff with no guarantee of work and on flexible and unpredictable hours. They do not include maternity or sick pay, nor give employees the right to claim unfair dismissal.
