Employment status: Agency worker was not protected from discrimination by end user
This report relates to 1 case(s)
In Muschett v HM Prison Service  IRLR 451 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.
- An agency worker was not an employee of the end user, so he was not entitled to complain of unfair or wrongful dismissal.
