Abstract

This article investigates the nature and extent of offshoring by United Kingdom firms and assesses whether the practice will alter the employment relationship between labour and capital in the service industry. The work takes a critical approach to the question and explores whether the changes to the employment relationship will be comparable or fundamentally different to those experienced in the manufacturing industry in the 1980s.
