Report How can a zero hours contract be valid in english law? in House prices and the economy Posted March 16, 2017 5 hours ago, quine said: Why all this anger over "zero hours contract"? Mr Quine is delighted to have any contract at the moment (oil and gas). Me too. Temping/contracting. Love the freemdom. Never knew the term "zero hour contract" before HPC forum.
