What is everyone doing about Casual Workers, 40% of our workforce is made up of Zero Hour Workers, who have Worker Contracts and therefore can accept or refuse work and it stipulates that each period of work is a separate assignment and there is no continuous service or relationship.
They are paid through PAYE.
This is a large grouping and it’s not 100% clear whether they fit into a category for government support? I have been advised that we could furlough them but there is a risk they will not be covered by the government scheme.
What advice is everyone giving to this group of staff, if you have any or what action are you taking?
