These workers perform a variety of functions that are normally
- part of the day-to-day operations, and
- usually carried out by permanent staff
of the employer to whom they are supplied.

is not covered according to the "Status" line of the relevant CU in the ECM.
Excluded from this category is the provision of a service whereby the employer providing the workers is responsible for creating a product as required by a written contract specifying types of deliverables, cost, timeframe for delivery, etc.
