Siacuinas and another v Capita Translation and Interpreting Ltd

Employment – Contract of employment. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) allowed an appeal against the employment tribunal's finding that the first respondent, an interpreter who had provided services to the appellant under a framework agreement, was an employee, within the meaning of s 83(2)(a) of the Equality Act 2010. The EAT held that the tribunal had erred by excluding consideration of the nature of the relationship between the appellant and the first respondent when he had not been providing such services and, in particular, considering whether there had been mutuality of obligation in that period. The case was remitted for a rehearing by a different tribunal.
