  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    How we know this

    57% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 14 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.

    Most people don’t get enough choice over which shifts they work
