Borrowed Employee Law and Legal Definition

A borrowed employee is an employee who is freed by his/her employer to another employer. The second employer would be treated as the borrowed employee’s employer for the purpose of worker’s compensation law. For this, the second employer has to exercise control over the employee and s/he must be absolutely free from the control of the original employer. The services of the employee have to be loaned with his/her consent. If the second employer do not exercise any control over the employee, s/he remains employee of the original employer.
