We spoke with Employment solicitor Jodie Hill from Thrive Law in Leeds. She gave us advice on zero hours contracts to your rights when it comes to going on holiday.

For example, did you know that if you are part-way through a temporary zero hours contract; you could get some sick pay?

Or, if you want to go to an affected area on holiday, you could negotiate with your employer?

Or, if you rely on Statutory Sick Pay, that will now kick in earlier?

Here's her advice for an unprecedented time when it comes to employment and employers' rights.
