MHC Consulting Services Ltd v Tansell: CA 19 Apr 2000

A company took on employees through an employment agency. The contract of employment was between the agency and the worker who was supplied to the company by the agency. It was the company which had relationship of principal to the worker, and so was responsible for compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act. The absence of a direct contractual relationship was not enough to make that disapply.
