In this seminar PJ Kirby and Gemma Witherington consider the issue of employee status. Is he or she an employee, a worker, an office holder or self-employed? The answer will be relevant to which remedies are available to the wronged individual. This is a very important issue in economic times where some organisations seek to avoid the consequence of employment law.
PJ and Gemma will consider the four key recent cases in this area, X v Mid Sussex CAB, O’Brien v Ministry of Justice, Quashie v Stringfellows and President of the Methodist Conference v Preston in relation to employment status.
They will also look at rights of solicitors in LLPs and part time judges, considering the cases of Bates van Winkelhof v Clyde & Co LLP and Tiffin v Lester Aldridge LLP.
