There have been some noteworthy cases over the last couple of weeks, such as;
Grainger plc v Nicholson UKEAT/0219/09/ZT
Climate change can be a philosophical belief and thus capable of protection within the terms of the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003. Please see my previous post on this high profile case.
A case on the distinction between employee, worker or self-employed. The Respondents were car valeters. All the factors usually considered in determining whether a person was employed or self-employed suggested they were employees. The “contract” they signed said they were “sub-contractors” but that did not reflect the reality of the situation. The CA held they were employees.
