    Andrews v Initial Cleaning Services Ltd and another [2000] ICR 166 CA (0 other reports)

In Andrews v Initial Cleaning Services Ltd and McDougall's Catering Foods Ltd, the Court of Appeal explains why a cleaning contractor, rather than the occupier of the building being cleaned, was more to blame for an injury suffered by a cleaner.

Joyce Andrews worked as an area manager for Initial Cleaning Services Ltd, which had a contract to clean the administrative and office block of McDougall's Catering Foods Ltd in Reading, Berkshire.
