This chapter argues that the expansion and restatement of the law of the contract of employment is a feasible and useful project. However, the complete execution of it would consist of an authoritative codification of the law of personal work or employment contracts. If that larger project would be undertaken in the future, this would involve a heavy investment of creative energy on the part of those concerned with the theoretical and practical development of employment law. The chapter considers whether the preliminary work has indicated that this would be a sound investment both in practical and theoretical terms.
