How does contracting work exactly, in the UK? In Canada, "contractor" is a way of getting somebody to do the same job as an employee, only they don't need a reason to be fired, don't get sick days, don't get benefits at all really, including employment protections of any sort, and they get paid a lot less. Is it similar over there?
