There ain’t no such thing as a zero-hours employment contract: content, structure and termination
Date 18/03/2015
Speaker David Cabrelli (Senior Lecturer, Edinburgh University)
Seminar Details This talk will centre around the issue that most zero-hours contracts will not constitute employment contracts. As such, the nature of the common law and statutory obligations imposed on the zero-hours contract worker and the ‘employer’ is a bit of a black hole, as are the rules relating to termination of that contract.
