Ban on Exclusivity Clauses to Be Extended

on Thursday, 19 May 2022.

An exclusivity clause is often used within an employment contract to restrict workers from taking on additional work with other employers. These types of restrictive clauses were banned in zero-hour contracts in 2015.

The Government has now confirmed that it wishes to extend the ban on exclusivity clauses to contracts where a worker's weekly income is on or below the Lower Earnings Limit (LEL). The LEL equates to £123 a week.

The Government is yet to provide a date as to when this may take effect.
