TUC Condemns Use Of 'Scare' Clauses By Gig Economy Employers

Commenting on today's report by Work and Pensions Committee, which criticises gig economy employers for inserting clauses into contracts that threaten employees who take them to tribunal, TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:

"These clauses are not legally enforceable. But they are being used as a scare tactic to stop workers from challenging bad working conditions.

"Many people working in the gig economy are unaware of their rights at work and are afraid of being victimised if they speak out. Companies are deliberately exploiting this fear to prevent scrutiny of their employment practices.

"The government urgently needs to reform employment law, so that employers who use these appalling clauses are fined."
