    Clark v Oxfordshire Health Authority EAT/1054/95 (0 other reports)

The contract between a health authority and a nurse who was available in a casual capacity to fill temporary vacancies in the authority's hospitals was, properly construed, a "contract of employment", holds a majority of the EAT in Clark v Oxfordshire Health Authority 13.5.96 EAT 1054/95. In principle, where a document contains the main distinguishing characteristics of a contract of employment, an industrial tribunal should deal as specifically as possible with them if it proposes to conclude that there was not in fact such a contract.
