Are you unsure whether zero hour contracts are right for your business?
We regularly see employers at various sized companies and organisations struggle with these questions; whether that be HR managers straight through to CEOs.
So what exactly are zero hour contracts?
A zero hour contract is a contract between an employer and an individual whereby the worker has no guaranteed hours and is only paid for the work they actually carry out.
This means that:
- employers do not need to give them work.
- the individuals on zero hour contracts do not have to accept work offered to them.
- it provides a pool of workers who are on ‘standby’ for the employers.
