Zero hour employees

Zero hour employees are those which are given no guaranteed hours of work by their employer but are required to be available for work under certain conditions.


  • The Organisation of Working Time Act, 1997 requires zero hour workers to be provided with compensation in certain circumstances where no work, or minimal work, is provided.
  • The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 2018 prohibits zero hours contracts save in certain limited circumstances.
