Reports relating to this case:
- 30 March 2010
In Muschett v HM Prison Service  EWCA Civ 25 CA, the Court of Appeal held that an agency worker had neither a contract of employment nor a contract with the end user personally to carry out work. Accordingly, he could not bring complaints of unfair or wrongful dismissal, or of unlawful discrimination, against the end user.

This week's case of the week, provided by DLA Piper, covers agency workers.
- 10 February 2010
The Court of Appeal has upheld an employment tribunal decision that an agency worker was not an employee of the end user. Nor was he in its employment under the wider meaning in anti-discrimination legislation. Therefore, he was unable to bring claims against it for unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and discrimination.
