For the attention of Ben JonesHi Ben. Can you please advise on zero hour contract. Some of our carers are stating that zero hour contract should only be active for 5 months and after that the contract should be changed to full time contract. Please is that the case.

Hi there, it is certainly not the case that a zero hours contract can only be in place for 5 months before it is changed to a permanent one. There is no legislation that says anything of the sort and a zero hours contract can currently last for an indefinite period.

I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
