Can a employer change my contract, or void it with notice, even though my contract says I am entitled to 30 days written notice?

Question Details:

Can a private employer change my contract or void it without notice, even if i should have 30 days written notice? My employer has given 1 day notice of contractual change, and that a new contract will be in effect as of Monday. Also, my boss told not come in because of the weather, however he did not send me written notice. I think he is trying to claim that I breached the contract as the contract provides I must work at least 30 hrs per week. How do I protect myself?
