It would have been safe if no outsourcing was mentioned as a clause in the contract.
Notwithstanding this A has the liability a s principal employer.
All contracts must have certain vital details mentioned, depending on nature of contract.
Have a standard contract for such hiring contracts which cover you legally and is up to date as per legal provisions.
