While we do have some people on zero-hour contracts, we are very pleased the government has promised an overhaul of employment rights. All our people receive holiday and sick pay amongst many other benefits such as retail discounts, genuine training and career opportunities.
We’re also Recognised Service Provider proudly working together with the Living Wage Foundation, the organisation at the heart of the movement for fair pay.
In July 2017, Good work, the Taylor review of modern working practices was published looking into what it means to be a good employer in the modern economy. The Government has since published its response to the Taylor Review, making recommendations for a higher minimum wage for workers on zero-hour contracts, and stricter enforcement of holiday and sick pay rights.
Tatry Group welcome moves to review a higher minimum wage for workers on zero hours contracts and stricter enforcement of holiday and sick pay rights - it’s a step in the right direction for gig economy and service workers who will benefit from more secure and stable employment.
As a Recognised Service Provider with the Living Wage Foundation we have long known the benefits of fair pay and business practices for those at the lower end of the pay scale, regardless of contract type – and it’s good for our businesses and our customers as we together reap the rewards of lower staff turnover and a more motivated workforce.
With living costs continuing to rise, we would encourage our competitors in the cleaning, security and facility management fields to ensure that all employees, regardless of the type of employment they're in, are able to earn a real Living Wage that meets the cost of living.
