Evaluation of Zero Hour Contracts within Ecoliteracy in New Zealand (NZ)
Okur-Berberoglu, Emel
International Electronic Journal of Environmental Education, v9 n2 p73-80 2019
Zero hour contract is an arrangement between employers and employees which does not include minimum working hours and employees have to be available in order to work in any time. There is a legal definition of it in New Zealand recently however it might be carried out under casual contract which is legal. Zero hour contract is a big problem in terms of employees and ecoliteracy because it causes exploitation of the employees' rights. The aim of this study is therefore to evaluate the applications of zero hour contracts within ecoliteracy in New Zealand. It will then focus on specific points, negative aspects--in terms of employees--and the local implications of zero hour contracts. In conclusion, it may be said that the zero hour contract should be checked by the government regularly and employees' rights should be protected legally in New Zealand.
