When utilising zero hour contracts it can be difficult to understand appropriate use. Zero hour contracts are useful when the pattern of work is irregular, or in sectors where there is not a constant demand for staff, such as hospitality, leisure, or catering. New businesses may well use zero hours contracts whilst building an initial customer base, but in order to avoid a tribunal claim it is important to know what could be classed as inappropriate use of a zero hour contract.

Put simply, zero hour contracts should not be used as a permanent arrangement if it is not justifiable.

If you employ or manage staff and you are either using or considering a zero hour employment contract, speak to Employer Advice for bespoke advice on how to handle the situation, tailored to business owners and employers.
