About the consultation

The Jersey Employment Forum was asked by the outgoing Social Security Minister, following the agreement of the States Assembly, to investigate the operation of zero hours' contracts in Jersey, and to make recommendations for possible changes to the Employment (Jersey) Law 2003 and other measures that the Forum may consider necessary to enhance the protections available to employees; and to clarify the rights and responsibilities that employees and employers currently have under the Law.

The Forum invites views from as wide a cross-section of the Jersey community as possible.

Responses must be made by the 31 August 2022. The Employment Forum will also be engaging with business and trade union organisations to take evidence directly from them.

The Forum has prepared a background paper to accompany this consultation exercise. It can be found here:
