9 August 2017

On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales)

The Supreme Court has granted permission to appeal in this case in which the issue is whether the respondent was a 'worker' within the meaning of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and Regulation 2 of the Working Time Regulations 1998, and whether the respondent was in "employment" within s.83(2)(a) of the Equality Act 2010. A hearing will be scheduled in due course.
