Under a zero-hour contract, a party described as a' casual worker' has a contract with an employer, but the contract may be of little benefit as its provisions do not (1) ________ any obligation upon the employer to offer work, and similarly, there is no obligation for the worker to accept it. A 'casual worker, is the correct term to define workers who do not have (2) ________ hours of work but instead supply services on an irregular, flexible basis when the employer needs them. A' worker' is not, therefore, an 'employee'. This is an important distinction, as employees enjoy significantly better protection under the law. Although workers do have basic rights, for example, the right to a national minimum (3) ________, the right not to be unlawfully discriminated against and the right to sick pay, but they are denied other important rights. For example, casual workers do not have the same rights when it comes to issues such as maternity or paternity pay, (4) ________, pay in the event that there is not enough work available and the right not to be unfairly (5) ________.

The use of zero-hour contracts is extremely popular in the food and retail (8)________ of the Eurona economy. For example, McDonald's and Burger King have recently disclosed that they use this type of contract for over 80% of their workers in the Eurona and another high-street giant, Sports Direct, has admitted that 90% of its workers are under this type of contract. However, the latter (9) _____ a legal challenge in November 2016 when Tera Phera filed a claim against the company in a Eurona Employment Tribunal. Tera Phera claimed that although she was contracted as a casual worker for Sports Direct, she had the same responsibilities and duties as an employee but without receiving the benefits of an employee. A (10) _____was reached according to which Sports Direct is now required at the time of advertising for future zero-hours staff to expressly state that the role does not (11) _____ work.
