MSP Gil Paterson is urging constituents to make their views heard on unpaid trial shifts.
A consultation has been launched by SNP colleague Stewart McDonald MP for a Bill to ban the practice.
The Unpaid Trial Work Periods (Prohibition) Bill was introduced on Thursday by the Glasgow South MP.
Now, Mr Paterson is looking for constituents to air their experiences and contribute to the legislation.
He said: “Young people often get a raw deal when it comes to employers, with a lower minimum wage and zero hour contracts especially. Unpaid trial shifts are just another example of the obstacles they face.
“I am very glad my colleague Stewart McDonald MP is taking up this fight and forming a draft Bill in such an open manner. Given the slip majority in the House of Commons, this Bill faces a real opportunity of becoming legislation.
“I would encourage constituents of mine, of all ages, to take part in the consultation, which takes just a few minutes to complete, and will actively inform Mr McDonald in writing the Bill.”
