This briefing will be of interest to anyone either working on a zero hours contract or someone who hires people on zero hours contracts who need to know about core legal issues surrounding these type of contracts. It looks at the sometimes emotive issue of zero hours contracts in terms of the difficulties of not having a singular definition and issues such as – paper versus practice, case law decisions, consultations in GB and NI and the potential future regulation of such contracts.
At the end of this briefing, participants will be able to:
- distinguish between a contract of service and contract for services
- utilise relevant case decisions as they may apply to their organisations
- prepare for future regulation of zero hours contracts in terms of policies and clauses
