Appointment of a Casual Worker – Casual Workers Contract
Your appointment is on “an as and when required” basis working at the location assigned. You will be notified by the app or via email as and when work is available.

A copy of the pay schedule with cut off dates and pay dates can be found on the app. The app will record the completed hours of each assignment and this will be paid on the last working day of each month.
Please note that if you do not provide bank or building society account Contact Field Marketing & Solutions will be unable to make the payment, with the result that your pay will be held in trust by the company until this information is provided.
If you are hired as a tactical/casual worker, you will be paid rolled up holiday pay which will be included in your hourly rate.

Tactical/Casual workers are free to take holidays as and when they wish. CFM&S will proactively encourage their flexible staff to take regular holidays throughout the year.
Any tactical/casual worker who would rather not receive rolled up holiday pay and would prefer to receive holiday pay when holidays are actually taken must inform payroll as soon as they start work on their first assignment.
Contact Field Marketing & Solutions will always give as much notice as possible to terminate an agreed assignment however this is not always possible and the client can cancel at any time prior to the assignment. Contact Field Marketing & Solutions will not be financially held to any work that is cancelled.
In all other circumstances when you are due notice, the minimum period of notice which you are entitled to receive is one month or the statutory minimum period, whichever is the longer.
If you have any concerns at work throughout the course of your employment, you should raise your concerns your manager in the first instance. If your concerns cannot be resolved informally, you can express your concerns in writing and this will be duly investigated as a grievance following the ACAS Code of Practice.
Any breach of disciplinary rules will render you liable to disciplinary action (or summary dismissal for offences of gross misconduct) unless there are mitigating circumstances.

Unauthorised removal of property belonging to Contact Field Marketing & Solutions or that of the client; offences of dishonesty; fighting; physical assault; falsification of time sheets, subsistence and expenses claims; theft; malicious damage to Contact Field Marketing & Solutions property; sexual offences.
Where an investigation has given adequate evidence and a monitory value is owed this will be recouped from wages owed.
