    This summer I was working on a 4 hour contract, but never worked less than 16 hours a week. The 4 hours was a bare minimum that the company could not refuse to offer me.

    If you're working more than 20 hours a week your entitlement to WTC could change. It will be based off you're actual hours not what is written on the contract. The contract gives a minimum number of hours that you MUST work and your boss MUST pay for - it gives both parties some protection. However they can ask you to work more hours than your contract. You can refuse but they can fire you if you can't meet the needs of the business (assuming you've been employed there less than 2 years).
