Say No

To Unpaid Trial Shifts

Who are we?

Say No To Unpaid Trial Shifts is a Brighton and Hove-based grassroots organisation aiming to end the unfair and unnecessary practice of unpaid trial shifts.

Unpaid trial shifts, where an employer makes revenue from a prospective employee working for any duration of time, exploit workers, especially young people in the hospitality industry.

Requiring any amount of unpaid work is illegal and immoral. Would you work for free?
