To be 'in collar' is to be working, employed. Is 'out of collar' used to mean the opposite?

Cheers.

To be 'in collar' does not mean to be working, as far as I know.

You've probably seen a mistranslation of 'in harness' and its opposite 'out of harness', which do mean 'working' and 'not working'.

Start every sentence with a capital letter, as shown.
