While this is discretionary and employers may argue that employees working exclusively in a bank are not employees, employees may wish to argue that this approach is contrary to the spirit of the clause and that they should be entitled to some recognition of years of service. Employees working exclusively in banking contracts were particularly affected during this period, with some bank employees who did not have access to the Job Retention Scheme (Furlough) having a negative impact on their income due to the decrease in the availability of certain jobs. The NHS Staff Council has adopted guidelines for employers who should consider flexible contractual options for Bank staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide discusses the rights of bank employees, including the impact on affordable services and pensions. Employers could also encourage and assist bankers to apply for substantial roles that offer access to the full benefits of NHS terms of service, development opportunities and career advancement. In the past, bank employees were not considered employees, as the normal conditions of an employment contract between the parties do not exist. In particular, there is no “mutual obligation” – i.e. the obligation for a worker to participate in the work and the employer`s obligation to pay him (among others) for that presence – in this type of contract. This means that as a bank employee, you can choose the hours you want to work. It makes banking work a popular choice for parents and those with personal obligations, as there is no obligation to work on certain days and you only have to accept the positions you can work.
Similarly, the flexibility of banking work is often attractive to retired caregivers who want to refresh their skills or increase their income. Some bank employees take on additional positions in a station/department where they already work under an employment contract. Others may pick up positions in a number of similar work environments inside a workplace. If the worker has two roles in separate NHS employment organisations (with SEPARATE PAYMENT references), both organisations are legally required to assess the worker according to automatic enrolment laws. If the worker has a full-time job and has a zero-hour/bank agreement with the same employer, both agreements can be either aggregated into a “single employment relationship”, with retirement hours being limited to normal full-time hours under NHSPS rules. . . .
