The Business requires casual workers due to varying business demands meaning the Business cannot always predict how many people it will need to carry out work for it at all times. This letter records the terms on which the Business agrees to enter into a casual and flexible work relationship with you.
Status of this Agreement
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
You may enquire about work by emailing us, contacting us via telephone or via agreed platform.
If you accept an Assignment, the
Business will expect you to complete the Assignment.
If you accept an Assignment, you must tell the Business immediately if you are unable to complete it for any reason. In the event that an Assignment is not completed, you will be paid on a pro-rata basis for the work completed.
If the Business needs to cancel an
Assignment, it will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable.
The Business reserves the right to
terminate work you are carrying out at any time for operational reasons.
You will be paid for all work done
up to the time that piece of work is terminated. If the Business has not
contacted you before you attend the place of work, and
work you have agreed to carry out is cancelled, you will be compensated for
reasonable travel expenses already incurred.
Type of work
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. You will be told what is involved at the start of each piece of work.
Before offering you any work the
Business will need to inspect certain original documents to satisfy itself that
you are legally entitled to work within the EU. This will be explained to you
in more detail by us. You confirm that you are legally entitled to work in the
EU without any additional immigration approvals and agree to advise the
Business immediately in writing if you are no longer entitled at any time and
for any reason (Only applicable to EU

during each full holiday year (including public holidays). The Business'
holiday year runs between 1st January and 31st December.
If you have taken more holiday than
your accrued entitlement at the date that a piece of work ends, the Business

pay equals the average number of hours you work per day times your current
hourly rate) for each excess day.
