Tom Watkins, Employment Associate at Shulmans, has recently published in FM World an article relating to zero-hours contracts.

Amid fierce debate on the subject, and following the publication last month by the Office for National Statistics of figures that showed that 2.3% of the workforce are on such contracts, Tom Watkins outlines the key facts that employers have to keep in mind when weighing the pros and cons of hiring staff on zero-hours contracts.
