This chapter begins by discussing labour law and its ‘relational’ scope in a number of different legal systems. It then analyses the notion of the ‘personal work relation’ as the domain of labour law, and by a functional definition of this novel concept. Subsequently, the chapter moves on to describe a number of kinds of work, described in terminologies which are not necessarily established legal categories, whose place in the firmament of labour law is either denied or contested, and analyses their relationship with the broad concept of ‘personal work relation’. Finally, this discussion is contextualised in the English and European law approach to defining the scope of labour law, broadly understood.
