Election 2015: Ed Miliband makes zero-hours contracts pledge

Labour has vowed to crack down on what it calls an "epidemic" of zero-hours contracts.

Party leader Ed Miliband has set out plans to give people on such contracts the legal right to a regular contract after 12 weeks.

Zero-hours contracts allow employers to hire staff with no guarantee of work. It means employees work only when they are needed.
