Understanding Zero Hours Contracts

In case you are unclear about what zero hours contracts mean, we have a brief outline here with a link to ACAS to find out more.

Also known as a casual contract, a zero hour contract describes work that is on call, essentially carried out when needed.

It has two sides:

For the employer

As an employer you don’t have to give staff work with such a contract. However you are still responsible for health and safety whilst working with you.

For the worker

As a worker you don’t have to work when asked and you can get work from elsewhere.

You are entitled to statutory annual leave and the National Minimum Wage, exactly like regular workers.

This should help but if you have any questions about your contract, give us a call on 0113 322 7250 and we’ll talk you through it. Click here to find out more from ACAS on Zero Hours Contracts.
