Reports relating to this case:

  • Employment status: Supervisory worker on the "lump" was an "employee"

    15 June 2001

    In Reid v North West Ceilings Ltd t/a Shopspec, the EAT holds that a shopfitter/joiner, with supervisory responsibilities, fell into the now well-recognised category of employees on the "lump", despite the fact that both he and his employer had treated him as self-employed for tax and NI purposes.

  • Employment tribunals must follow clear guidelines

    1 June 2001

    The EAT finds a tribunal's decision 'perverse' in failing to follow established guidelines when determining a plaintiff's employment status. Plus cases on TUPE, race discrimination and victimisation.
