ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the opposing actions from courts and legislators with regards to agency staff rights in Great Britain. It discusses a case involving agency worker Merana James in which the Court of Appeal ruled that she was not able to prove her legitimacy for claiming unfair dismissal. It adds that the decision provides an obstacle to the campaign for enhanced job protection for agency workers. It notes that legislators are working on a European directive on temporary workers and the private member's bill designed to raise staff rights.
