1 . A said to b - this work is to be done .
2. A said to b - this work is to get done .
I have to know the difference between these two sentences. And to know when to use 'to be done ' and to get done.
Thanks.

    The meaning is unclear, and context is needed. where have you seen this, mbcrazy?

    This work is to be done= this work must be done/we have to do this work.

    This work is to get done :confused:

    We can tell someone: Get this work done immediately. This work is to be done immediately.
