Atypical/irregular hours workers

Who should attend

This course is aimed at HR professionals in education institutions who advise or provide guidance on the recruitment/management of atypical workers or who are responsible for the drafting/updating/application of their institution’s contracts of employment and other relevant policies relating to such staff.


The issue of atypical workers is an important one for the sector with it trying to balance modern working practices and the desire for flexible working against allegations of exploitation and the trade unions campaign against casualisation.

In this session we will look at:

− what do we mean by atypical/irregular hours staff?

− what are the key legal and practical considerations?

− what is the impact on terms and conditions of employment, continuity and termination?

− the renewal of fixed term contracts

− future changes
