Hello there, I am sorry to learn of your situation. At the moment, the government's plans to cover 80 per cent of workers' wages up to 2,500 GBP is only for employees that are full time or part-time PAYE workers. So I am very sorry to say that this does not apply to the self-employed (at the moment), freelancers, or people on zero-hour contracts. People on zero-hour contracts have very few rights anyway, hence why they are a political point of contention. But to conclude, from what I understand from your situation, as a zero-hour contract employee, your employer is not obliged to pay you anything or send any documentation. I think it's very harsh of your employer, but legally there is no protection for you, and I can only tell you what is legally the case. I am so sorry this is the situation you've found yourself in.
There isn't but your employer is obliged to give you a copy of your contract at your request. I would suggest you ask them directly for a copy.
I hope this answered your question. I would be grateful if you could provide a rating. This means that instead of JustAnswer retaining your credit, I am reimbursed for my time. It also makes it easier for me to respond to any follow-up questions you have (free of charge).
That's great, there should be a star rating system at the top of our chat window where you can leave a rating and therefore accept my answer. You will be able to ask follow up questions as necessary.
