Right to request more predictable terms and conditions of work

Implementation date: To be confirmed

The Workers (Predictable Terms and Conditions) Act 2023 gives workers, including agency workers and zero hours workers, the right to request more predictable terms and conditions, including the right to request a predictable working pattern.

The provisions of the Act are subject to secondary legislation (regulations) being introduced and brought into force. The Government has said that it expects the measures to come into force approximately one year after Royal Assent (which happened on 18 September 2023), to give employers time to prepare for the changes.
