In Bates Van Winkelhof v Clyde & Co LLP and another  IRLR 641 SC, the Supreme Court held that a solicitor who was a member of an LLP was a "worker" within the meaning of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and could therefore pursue a whistleblowing claim in the employment tribunal.
The Supreme Court has held that members of limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are "workers" for the purposes of whistleblowing legislation.
