Sharron Report 23 Aug 2013 10:53

OH has been to work all this week, including a night away because he had a business meeting.

Now he has gone to sign on..

No, he is not up to anything, it is the way you do it on zero hours contracts.

He signs on every week, has been doing so since April and has been given 90p in benefits. He has a job on zero hours which is picking up but needs to go for interviews for other jobs that he doesn't want or need because he already has a job.

What a mess!

Can see what you mean Sharron, but as long as he is up-front and honest, he is in the system if he should end up with zero hours work in one week AND his NI is being paid!
