contract of hire

A contract whereby the use of a thing, or the services or labor of a person are stipulated to be given for a certain reward. Wingate v Wingate, 11 Tex 430, 437. As used in a state unemployment compensation law, the term means an agreement whereby one undertakes or obligates himself to render personal service for another for a remuneration to be paid because the service was rendered, regardless of the element of profit or loss resulting from the work.
