      Reply to Allister: The content of the job is what is important, not the title. I suggest you cosnsult with a specialist in Labour and Employment Law for advice.

      Reply to Lelingowa: Keep your eyes and ears open for the changes in the Labour Legislation later this year. While Labour Broking won’t be banned, the practice of employing people for lengthy periods at lesser conditions of employment will be severely restricted.
