*Clyde & Co LLP and another v Bates van Winklehof

Employment – 'Worker'. The Supreme Court allowed the appeal brought by the appellant solicitor against the decision of the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in which the Court of Appeal had decided that, applying s 4(4) of the Limited Liability Partnerships Act 2000, she was not a 'worker' within the meaning of s 230(3)(b) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and was therefore not entitled to claim the protection of its whistle blowing provisions. The Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, deciding that s 4(4) of the 2000 Act did have the meaning ascribed to it by the Court of Appeal.
