We have a driver who is currently employed on a 1 year fixed term contract (this was issued after he decided to work one year beyond our normal retirement date). With our agreement he is formerly retiring at the end of this contract, but will be returning immediately as a relief driver.
As the hours will be variable week to week it would seem reasonable to employ him on a zero hours contract (any examples would be gratefully appreciated). Where do we stand however, with continuity of service and benefits?
Any advice would be appreciated?
