Date / Time

BC CARE LTD     (the 'Business') requires casual workers because varying business demand means that the Business cannot always predict how many people it will need to carry out work for it at all times. This letter records the terms on which the Business agrees to enter into a casual work relationship with you.

Status of This Agreement

  1. This contract contains all of the agreed terms between you and the Business relating to your casual work from time to time for the Business. This is not an employment contract and does not give you any employment rights (other than rights which workers are entitled to). This agreement does not create any obligation on the Business to provide work for you. By signing this contract you confirm your understanding that the Business makes no promise of a minimum amount of work nor working hours and you will work on a flexible basis, as and when required. It is the intention of both you and the Business that there be no mutuality of obligation between you and the Business at any time when you are not performing work for the Business.

How Work Will Be Offered and Carried Out

  1. It is entirely at the Business' discretion whether to offer you or any other person work or not. The Business is not required to provide you with work at any time and the Business does not have to give reasons for its decisions.
  2. Each piece of work offered to you is entirely separate and you and the Business have no relationship in between the different pieces of work (an 'Assignment'). Just because work has been offered to you once or more than once, this does not give you any legal rights or entitle you to regular work or give you continuity of employment.
  3. All work you carry out for the Business will be governed by the terms of this letter, unless the Business tells you otherwise, in writing.
  4. If the Business wants to offer you any work it will contact you with an offer by email or telephone. You are under no obligation to accept any work offered by the Business at any time.
  5. You may enquire about work by emailing us or contacting us via telephone.
  6. If you accept an Assignment, the Business will expect you to complete the Assignment.
  7. If you accept an Assignment, you must tell the Business immediately if you are unable to complete it for any reason. In the event that an Assignment is not completed, you will be paid on an hourly basis for the work completed.
  8. If the Business needs to cancel an Assignment, it will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable.
  9. The Business reserves the right to terminate work you are carrying out at any time for operational reasons.
  10. You will be paid for all work done up to the time that piece of work is terminated. If the Business has not contacted you before you attend the place of work, and work you have agreed to carry out is cancelled, you will be compensated for reasonable travel expenses already incurred.

Type of Work

  1. The Business may offer you work from time to time as needed. If you accept any offer of work, the Business anticipates that your duties will include Senior Care Assistant. The type of work may change with each piece of work and you may be required to carry out other duties as necessary to meet business needs. You will be told what is involved at the start of each piece of work.
  2. Before offering you any work the Business will need to inspect certain original documents to satisfy itself that you are legally entitled to work in the UK. This will be explained to you in more detail by us. You confirm that you are legally entitled to work in the UK without any additional immigration approvals and agree to advise the Business immediately in writing if you are no longer entitled at any time and for any reason.


  1. You will only be paid for the hours that you attend work, as agreed in advance, and set out in clause 2. The Business' current rate of pay for casual workers is £13.50 an hour (gross).

The Business will make all necessary deductions from your wages as required by law, including pension contributions which may be required to be deducted under the auto-enrolment regime, and is entitled to deduct from your wages, or other payments due to you, any money which you may owe to the Business at any time.

  5. If you have taken more holiday than your accrued entitlement at the date that a piece of work ends, the Business may deduct from any payment due to you one day's pay (on the basis that a day's pay equals the average number of hours you work per day times your current hourly rate) for each excess day.
