Zero hours’ contracts are hitting the headlines with talk of banning them or at least, limiting their use. However, with ‘zero hours’ contract’ not having a legal definition it is a reminder of the difficulties of managing a flexible workforce.

The employment contract forms the basis of the employment relationship, but terms and conditions are not limited to one contract document. Your actions as business owner or manager and common law rights also form the contract of employment and knowing the pitfalls can help you avoid potential tribunal claims.

On our Employment Contract Training Course you will learn:

  • What is meant by zero hours’ contract and how can I maintain a flexible workforce in the future?
  • Why is it important to know whether an individual is an employee, worker or self-employed?
  • How can I change terms and conditions of employees to ensure the needs of my changing business are met?
  • As a result of TUPE transfers we are managing groups of employees with different terms and conditions –  can we harmonise them?

We’ll explain the law governing contracts using practical examples to illustrate how to apply these principles in practice.
