They cannot vary a fundemental part of your contract without consultation with you first. They would need to have your agreement to varyt he contract otherwidse they would be in breach of it.

 

There are 3 options;

1. Accept the contract

2. Oppose the contract but continue to work until it is resolved

3. Resign and try and claim unfair dismissal

 

The company may dismiss you if you do not accept the contract and offer your job back under the new conditions. Again you could claim unfair dimissal if you have at leats 1 years service.

Have a look at employment contract law. Information is on the ACAS website and the direct.gov website. I think it would be helpful to have a look at the employment rights act 1996, it'll help you.

 

Are you a member of a trade union? Perhaps consider joining. They can help so much with issues like this in negotiating for you.

My advice is only my opinion, I am not a legal expert.

Hi Lakeland,

 

Aaron's advice is correct - but do remember you would need 12 months continuous service to pursue option 3.

 

As an aside, I think zero hours contracts are a distasteful creation – but at least they make calculating holiday entitlement and holiday pay more difficult for your employer!

 

Good luck
