Volunteers not "employees"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Voluntary workers were not "employees" as defined in s.68 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, holds the EAT in South East Sheffield Citizens Advice Bureau v Grayson (17 November 2003). Although it is a case concerning the number of employees for the purposes of the "small employer" exclusion in s.7, which will end with effect from 1 October, the EAT provides authoritative guidance on the status of voluntary workers.
