What are the differences between contract of service and contract for service?

I am aware that a contract of service is an agreement between an employer and an employee but I've also heard of what they call a contract for service and that they are different. What are the differences between contract of service and contract for service and how do you distinguish them from eachother?

    Here are the distinguishing difference between contract of service and contract for service. Contracto of service has an employer-employee relationship,employee does business for employer, may be covered by the Employment Act and includes terms of employment such as working hours, leave benefits, etc... while contract for service has a client-contractor type of relationship, contractors carry out business on their own account, are not covered by the Employment act and statutory benefits do not apply.
