    Working laws

    If you have been working for more than 6 months, have no contract (don't ask), is the employer bound in anyway to give you the hours you have been doing for the 12 months you have been there.

    last time i heard, even if there isn’t a written contract, by 2 parties ie you and the employer, there is a contact in place if you have been paid and received payslips, but that is more health & safety reasons i believe. however if you joined the company and agreed a set amount of hours, i think you will be on shaky ground to try and prove it and to make your employer to continue with those hours unless it was put in writing. Always get stuff in writing, if the employer wont then be prepared for this sort of thing. I would contact citizen’s advice as they should point you in the right direction.

    there is still a contract in place even if you don't have anything in writing.

    however... changes to any terms of your contract don't necessarily have to be in writing either - so basically they don't have to notify you of cutting your hours
