Cairns v. Visteon UK Ltd. - Agency worker's contractual status  EAT
Ms Cairns had a contract of service with an employment agency, MSX. They provided her services to their client, Visteon. Visteon paid a fee to MSX, which in turn paid a salary to Ms Cairns in the normal way. In May 2005 Visteon told MSX they no longer wanted Ms Cairns services as they suspected her of falsifying time sheets. MSX coud not find other work for her so terminated her contract with pay in lieu of notice plus a redundancy payment.
