Your request and our response

I write to request information about Mid Devon District Council's policy and practice on zero hours contracts and other associated statistics under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

  1. What is your policy on zero hours contracts?
  2. How many workers are currently employed by Mid Devon District Council on zero hours contracts? What is the breakdown of these figure according to (a) occupation, (b) sex, (c) race and (d) age? 57, please see below
  3. How many workers are currently employed on zero hours contracts via agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that provide workers to Mid Devon District Council?  If this data is not available, please provide the names of the agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that you use to employ workers indirectly. Comensura
  4. How many workers are currently employed on minimum hours contracts directly by Mid Devon District Council or via agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that provide workers to Mid Devon District Council? 199 employees. Agency unknown.
  5. How many workers in total does Mid Devon District Council currently employ? What is the breakdown of these figure according to (a) occupation, (b) sex, (c) race and (d) age? 580, please see below

 

For clarification:

  • By zero hours contract, I mean a contract where no work is guaranteed and the employee/worker has the right to turn down work
  • By minimum hours contract, I mean a contract where the employer guarantees a set number of hours work, less than the usual full time number of hours.
