What is Mutuality of Obligation?

Mutuality of Obligation means that the employer and employee have a mutual obligation to one another.

For example, if an employer recruited a member of staff on a permanent basis they would have an ongoing responsibility to provide ‘work’ to the staff member each week.

The staff member would have a responsibility to accept the work being offered as they have agreed to become a permanent member of staff.

The terms of this agreement are defined in the employment contract between the employer and employee.

If you are a Contractor you will work for a specific period of time to deliver a certain service. At the end of the Contract you will not have a duty to accept further work. It is very important that this point is explained fully in the contract.
