- Is it possible to free or emancipate contractors from the type of control that the Court now regards as indicative of employment in a labour hire context? What sort of control is that, anyway?
- What would emancipation involve? How would you present it in a contract – given that the court will focus on the terms of the contract to determine the nature of the legal relationship.
- Could an on-hire engagement and supply model that doesn’t promise “compliant” or “controlled” labour really work? Is it marketable? Are the on-demand platforms already doing something similar?
- Why would anyone NOT want to be an employee? Is it possible to point to any intelligible business purpose that could underpin an emancipated labour contracting model?
