Contracts of employment: Dockworkers not employed on "global" contracts

This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Scarah and others v Fish Container Services Limited 8 November 1994 CA (0 other reports)

In Scarah and others v Fish Container Services Limited, the Court of Appeal restores an industrial tribunal's decision that dockworkers engaged by a company on separate stints to unload fish were not employed under "global" contracts of employment covering the entire working relationship. Furthermore, the gap between the end of the last stint and the date on which the workers claimed that their employment had terminated meant that there was no statutory continuity of employment down to that date.
