Black, Asian and other ethnic minority workers are a third more likely to be "trapped" in insecure work than white counterparts, says the TUC.
One in 19 white employees are on zero-hours or temporary work contracts.
The figure for ethnic minority workers is one in 13, according to the TUC report, which uses figures from the government's Labour Force Survey.
The report said discrimination in the labour market was placing them under significant financial stress.
Black and Asian workers were twice as likely to report not having enough hours to make ends meet, the TUC said.
