Jersey ban for zero-hour contracts exclusivity clause

Image caption Jersey states members voted 42 to 1 in favour of banning the clause

Companies in Jersey will not be able to stop people on zero-hours contracts from working for more than one company after a government vote.

So called "exclusivity clauses" were banned in the UK last year.

Members voted 42 to 1 in favour of a ban after deputy Sam Mezec of Reform Jersey brought the proposition.

It was supported by the Health and Social Security scrutiny panel which says they stop those on lower incomes from topping up their wages elsewhere.

A time limit has not been set for when work will get under way on the law change.
