    • A.

      Fixed-term contract

    • B.

      Annual hours contract

    Correct Answer
    B. Annual hours contract
    Explanation
    A worker who is paid £20,000 per year and works 48 hours a week will have an annual hours contract. This type of contract specifies a set number of hours that the worker is expected to work over the course of a year, rather than a fixed number of hours per week or month. This allows for flexibility in scheduling and may involve varying hours from week to week, as long as the total number of hours worked over the year remains the same.

    If an employee worked 20 hours a week over 3 days would they have a part time contract? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If an employee worked 20 hours a week over 3 days, it can be inferred that they have a part-time contract. This is because a part-time contract typically involves working fewer hours than a full-time contract, and the employee in question is working less than the standard 40 hours a week. Additionally, the fact that they are working over 3 days suggests that their work schedule is not spread out evenly over the entire week, further indicating a part-time arrangement. Therefore, the correct answer is true.
