The Conceptual Integrity of Employment
University of Exeter
Cambrian Law Review
University College of Wales, Department of Law
The concept of 'employment' appears in various contexts in English law. However, the word 'employment' is defined in a variety of ways depending on which context is in point. This gives rise to the question as to whether there is a single, unified, concept of employment that is nevertheless characterised differently according to context, or whether a common term is used to cover a variety of differing concepts. The issue is an important one because the requirement or legitimacy of adopting cross-contextual, comparative, approaches is relevant to the development and interpretation of employment-related matters in several areas of law.
