Treasurer says zero hours workers have no rights
It’s the consultant’s curse – people value your advice enough to ask for it, but try everything they can to avoid paying for it.
But this week, we experienced the complete opposite.
A golf club client of ours point blank refused to take the advice we gave them.
Advice that they’ve already paid for.
The club had received an ACAS Early Conciliation (EC) notification – EC is the stage just before formal tribunal, so they were – understandably – pretty worried.
The employee in question had worked for them for six years on a zero hours contract, had been given notice in February and left at the end of June because the notice period had been extended.
So what was the problem?
