FF slam lack of action on Zero Hours contracts

Fianna Fáil is criticising the length of time its taking the Government to bring forward legislation to ban zero hours contracts.

The Cabinet has approved a draft Bill which aims to strengthen the regulation of casual workers, particularly in low-paid sectors.

Employers have hit out at the proposals, which they describe as crude and disproportionate and say they could expose them to being guilty of a criminal offence.

Fianna Fáil’s Niall Collins says its about getting the right balance.
