Employment law cases

Dacas v Brook Street Bureau (UK) Ltd and another [2003] IRLR 190 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Employment status: Agency worker was an employee

    23 May 2003

    In Dacas v Brook Street Bureau (UK) Ltd and another, the EAT holds that an employment tribunal erred in law when it found an agency worker not to be an employee of the agency during the course of an individual assignment, in circumstances where an application of the test of the two minimum requirements of the degree of control and mutuality of obligations pointed overwhelmingly towards the existence of a contract of employment.
