Legal 500 2021
If you are employed under a contract of employment and you are a part-time worker you have the right to be treated no less favourably than your full-time colleagues doing comparable work. This applies regardless of whether your employer classes you as a “casual” or “zero-hours worker”.
You also have the right to take annual leave and to be paid at the time you take it. Casual or Zero Hours Contracts are not unlawful in themselves but the arrangement must be a genuine flexible arrangement. This means that you must be free to refuse work without having to give a reason or find another colleague to cover you.
It also means that you must be entitled to accept work elsewhere without needed permission. If these circumstances do not apply it is likely that you are an employee under a contract of employment and that you are entitled to a range of rights and protections.
