Employment status: Client of employment agency had sufficient control to be employer of agency worker

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Motorola Ltd v Davidson and another [2001] IRLR 4, dealing solely with the issue of control, the EAT holds that a client of an employment agency had sufficient control over the worker assigned to it to sustain a finding that it was in fact the employer of the worker. The client had as much practical control over the worker as it did in the case of an "orthodox" employee.
