Alternative Personal Work Contracts and Relations

Show Summary Details


This chapter first examines the two statutory constructs that have been formulated by the UK Parliament as a repository for the conferment of certain statutory employment rights. These two alternative personal work contracts — the ‘worker’ contract and the ‘contract personally to do work’ are intermediate contract types, lying somewhere between the contract of employment and the contract for services. The chapter then turns to legal status of agency workers. It examines whether the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 address the disadvantages experienced by this section of the UK workforce.
