Broad construction of "contract worker"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Harrods Ltd v Remick and others (17 July 1997) EOR76B, the Court of Appeal gives a purposive construction to the Race Relations Act's provisions on contract workers, and holds that staff employed by concessionaires at Harrods store could sue Harrods in respect of alleged discrimination, since they were contract workers who worked "for" Harrods within the meaning of s.7, even though they also worked for their employer.
