Landmark temps ruling could leave employers paying the price
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Franks v Reuters Ltd and another  IRLR 423 CA (2 other reports)
Employers are being warned to take more care over the way they treat temporary staff following a court ruling that direct dealings over time could give temps an implied employment contract and therefore full employee rights.
The Court of Appeal ruling in Franks v (1) Reuters Limited (2) First Resort Employment Limited could expose firms to employment claims from temps, and possibly also from contractors working through personal service companies.
