Status of this Agreement

1.    This contract contains all of the agreed terms between you and the Business relating to your casual work from time to time for the Business. This is not an employment contract and does not give you any employment rights (other than rights which workers are entitled to). This agreement does not create any obligation on the Business to provide work for you. By signing this agreement, you confirm your understanding that the Business makes no promise of a minimum amount of work nor working hours and you will work on a flexible basis, as and when required. It is the intention of both you and the Business that there be no mutuality of obligation between you and the Business at any time when you are not performing work for the Business.

How work will be offered and carried out

2.    It is entirely at the Business’ discretion whether to offer you or any other person work or not. The Business is not required to provide you with work at any time and the Business does not have to give reasons for its decisions.

3.    Each piece of work offered to you is entirely separate and you and the Business have no relationship in between the different pieces of work (an 'Assignment'). Just because work has been offered to you once or more than once, this does not give you any legal rights or entitle you to regular work or give you continuity of employment unless agreed.

4.    All work you carry out for the Business will be governed by the terms of this agreement, unless the Business tells you otherwise, in writing.

5.    If the Business wants to offer you any work it will contact you with an offer by email, telephone or agreed platform. You are under no obligation to accept any work offered by the Business at any time.

10. The Business reserves the right to terminate work you are carrying out at any time for operational reasons.

The Business may offer you work from time to time and if you accept any offer of work, the Business anticipates that your duties will center around your job title however the type of work may change with each project and you may be required to carry out other duties as necessary to meet business needs.
