Request:

  1. What is your policy on zero hours contracts?
  2. How many workers are currently employed by Bolton NHS Foundation Trust on zero hours contracts? What is the breakdown of these figure according to (a) occupation, (b) sex, (c) race and (d) age?
  3. How many workers are currently employed on zero hours contracts via agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that provide workers to Bolton NHS Foundation Trust?  If this data is not available, please provide the names of the agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that you use to employ workers indirectly.
  4. How many workers are currently employed on minimum hours contracts directly by Bolton NHS Foundation Trust or via agencies, contractors or sub-contractors that provide workers to Bolton NHS Foundation Trust?
  5. How many workers in total does Bolton NHS Foundation Trust currently employ? What is the breakdown of these figure according to (a) occupation, (b) sex, (c) race and (d) age?

 

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.

 

 

Response:

As a trust we do not employ people on a zero hours contract.
