Ready Mixed Concrete (South East) Ltd V Minister of Pensions and National Insurance

Ready Mixed Concrete (South East) Ltd v Minister of Pensions and National Insurance 2 QB 497 is a UK labour law case concerning the definition of a contract of service, rather than a contract for services. The distinction is important because many employment law rights under the Employment Rights Act 1996 require that a claimant has "employee" status under s 230. An employee is defined as someone with a contract of employment, and that is defined to be a contract of service (or apprenticeship). The definition of a contract of service is left to the courts, and this is a leading case.

    The anthropologists are busy, indeed, and ready to transport us back into the savage forest where all human things ... have their beginnings; but the seed never explains the flower.
    Edith Hamilton (1867–1963)

    Where might is mixed with wit, there is too good an accord in a government.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    A sociosphere of contact, control, persuasion and dissuasion, of exhibitions of inhibitions in massive or homeopathic doses...: this is obscenity. All structures turned inside out and exhibited, all operations rendered visible. In America this goes all the way from the bewildering network of aerial telephone and electric wires ... to the concrete multiplication of all the bodily functions in the home, the litany of ingredients on the tiniest can of food, the exhibition of income or IQ.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Just let him be minister if that’s what he desires, but without his brother and his brother-in-law.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Many old people receive pensions for no other reason, it seems to me, but as a compensation for having lived a long time ago.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is accordance with our determination to refrain from aggression and build up a sentiment and practice among nations more favorable to peace ... that we have incurred the consent of fourteen important nations to the negotiation of a treaty condemning recourse to war, renouncing it as an instrument of national policy.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    For there can be no whiter whiteness than this one:
    An insurance man’s shirt on its morning run.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
