Sports Direct admits some 15,000 employed on zero hour contractsShoppers wait outside a branch of Sports Direct in Brighton southern EnglandAnswering questions from a British parliamentary committee over its employment practices and the administration of part of one of its fashion businesses, Sports Direct Chairman Keith Hellawell admitted some 15,000 UK staff were on zero hour deals, which do not specify set working hours or guaranteed income. Sports Direct, whose 4,300 permanent UK staff qualify for lucrative bonus share scheme payouts, had previously refused to confirm how many of its workers were on the contracts. Hellawell told the Scottish Affairs Committee the approach offers flexibility for its largely young workforce, some of whom are university students, and allowed the firm to meet demand. Nearly 700,000 people are on zero-hours contracts in their main job, according the UK's Office for National Statistics, a growing figure that has attracted increased political scrutiny.
