Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

There have never been any short cuts when it comes to employment law. For instance, what distinguishes a "casual" worker from a "permanent" member of staff? In Employment Bulletin you'll find out that terminology has little or no legal meaning— what counts is the contract. And don't think you can stop workers gaining full employee protection by hiring, firing and hiring again before they've completed two years' continuous service. A tribunal would not be impressed. Then there's the matter of responsibilities. A YTS youngster sounds like a chance to get cheap labour but beware. No young person can be used for work that exposes them to toxins or involves risk to health from extreme temperature, noise or vibration. That just about rules out every haulier's yard and workshop in the country! If you're going to get employment law right learn the lessons fast. Or face the music.
