In President of the Methodist Conference v Preston  IRLR 646 SC, the Supreme Court held that a Methodist minister did not have a contract with the church and accordingly could not pursue an unfair dismissal claim, because she was not an employee.
The Supreme Court has restored the employment tribunal decision that a minister of religion was not an employee and could not therefore claim unfair dismissal.
