The difference between "dispatch" and "contract" labor
"Dispatch labor" means that while there is an employment contract between the worker and the dispatching company, the worker is under the orders of the company to which he or she is sent. In "contract labor," on the other hand, the worker both has an employment contract with the contracting company and is under its orders, and in this case no direct legal relationship arises between the worker and the company at which he or she actually works.
