Hrabkova v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

European Union – Workers.

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions v Czop and another ([2012] All ER (D) 65 (Sep)) precluded the appellant's argument that words could be read into art 10 of Regulation (EU) No 492/2011 of the European Parliament and Council, so that 'worker' included a self-employed person.
