Burning question - zero hours contracts

‘I keep hearing about “zero hours” contracts – what are they?’

Being on a ‘zero hours’ or bank contract is a flexible arrangement that means you will only be paid for the hours that you work.

The employer concerned does not have to offer you any work and you are not obliged to accept it if they do.

If you are on this type of contract you are classified as a ‘worker’ rather than an ‘employee’ and have limited employment rights.

The CSP is working with the TUC to look at the impact of an increasingly casualised workforce.

If you have any experiences of working under a zero hours or bank contract you would like to share, contact the CSP. Email: zerohours@csp.org.uk
