A contract of service usually means an agreement entered into between an employee and an employer. The definition of "contract of service" as stated in Section 2 of the Employment Act may be useful:
"contract of service" means any agreement, whether oral or in writing and whether express or implied, whereby one person agrees to employ another as an employee and that the other agrees to serve his employer as his employee and includes an apprenticeship contract;
On the other hand a contract for service usually means contract entered into between a contractor and an employer or company or person for providing services, like a contractor who supplies labour (workers) to perform certain work such as construction, cleaning and so on.
