Contracts of employment: Agency worker was an employee
This report relates to 1 case(s)
McMeechan v Secretary of State for Employment  IRLR 461 EAT (0 other reports)
The EAT holds in McMeechan v Secretary of State for Employment and another that where a temporary worker's relationship with an employment agency or business is governed by a written contract, the employment status of that worker is dependent on the construction of the contractual terms. There is no general rule of law that a temporary worker never has a contract of employment with the employment agency or business with which he or she is registered.
