Welcome to Wisbech, Sports Direct - and thank you for making clear the legal rights of workers in job adverts
I welcome the news that Sports Direct has opened its new store on the £50million Cromwell Retail Park in Wisbech.
The firm has created two management jobs and 18 casual roles.
Sports Direct, well-known for its widespread use of zero-hour employment contracts, has been forced to make clear in job adverts what its workers legal rights are.
Although zero-hour contracts do not guarantee work, employees do qualify for statutory sick pay and holiday pay.
The campaigning group Youth Fight for Jobs (YFJ) has targeted Sports Direct over its use of zero-hour contracts, with protests up and down the country.
