    I recentley started working for a latge uk company and i am contracted for 20 hours a week i have signed this and got a copy myself, at this job they say you have to stay untill the work is done as ot is unloading cages in a retail store, my hours of work are always diffrent every week as i am contracted 20 hours i assumed i would only be working 20 hours but i can be working 27 one week and like 57 the next week, it changes everyweek also me and my partner are claiming working tax for me working 20 hours but i never actually work that always more is this going to effect this and what can i do about this, thanks

    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).
