No problem. The pop-up offering you the chance to request a phone call is automatically generated by the site and you have already paid for a written response so that is the part I will continue helping you with.

Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.

Thank you

Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. If you have no contractual notice in place, then you are expected to give ‘at least a week’s notice’. However, as you ae a zero hours worker, it means that your employer may not give you any hours for that and also if offered, you may not have to accept any, due to your status as a zero hours worker.

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
