[(1)     In this section “zero hours contract” means a contract of employment or other worker's contract under which—

(a)     prohibits the worker from doing work or performing services under another contract or under any other arrangement, or

(b)     prohibits the worker from doing so without the employer's consent,

is unenforceable against the worker.
