The article discusses three court cases in Great Britain where the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) focused on the true nature of the relationship between workers and employers. In the case of Craigie v. London Borough of Haringey, the EAT ruled that the contract between Craigie and the agency and between the agency and the council, was consistent with the relationships and the services supplied. In James v. Greenwich London Borough Council, the EAT said that time alone was insufficient to form an employment relationship.
