I was working for a company for over 6 months. I had passed my probation period and continued as a part-timer. Once you had passed your probation period you were entitled to apply as zero hour contract. In my case I started my university after the 6 months so I emailed the person in charge requesting for zero hours contract. Since I couldn't cope with the part time job and full time university, I needed a flexibility with work. The lady emailed me back reassuring me that the manager (at the time) was aware of my situation and therefore for them to order me the zero hour contract I would have to hand in my resignation notice and take a 2 week gap from work and then I'd be given the new contract as zero hours. So I took her advice and send a resignation letter. At first she asked me to hand it in as a signed written notice, but later they just accepted my email and sent my p45.
Since then I have been trying to contact them regarding the zero hours but no one is doing anything about it. I have been jobless ever since. Can someone advise me please as to what I need to do? I knew that they would terminate my work email therefore I forwarded those email conversation to my personal email so that I would have them as evidence. Is it possible for me to get my job back?
I know a lot of people who are under the zero hour contract with the company still but every time I email and phone to ask they say they are waiting for the government policy regarding zero hour contract. However, I know that they have been recently giving zero hour contacts to other employees. I only handed in my resignation notice as per the woman's advice, otherwise I wouldn't have. What do I do? Appreciate your help and advice.
