Employment law cases

Dacas v Brook Street Bureau (UK) Ltd [2004] IRLR 358 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Employment status/agency worker: Worker not employee of agency

    7 May 2004

    In Brook Street (UK) Ltd v Dacas, the Court of Appeal holds that where an agency's obligations to a worker (who provides his or her services to an end-user) do not extend to an obligation to continue providing that worker with work, and where that worker is under no obligation to continue working or to accept any placement offered to them by the agency, there can be no mutuality of obligations between those parties.
