More workers, less self-employed contractors

Addison Lee are the latest company to fall foul of the self-employed test. The Employment Appeal Tribunal held earlier this month that Mr Gascoigne, a courier engaged by them was in fact a worker and therefore entitled to holiday pay in addition to other rights.

The EAT upheld the Tribunal’s finding that there was mutuality of obligation between the parties by Mr Gascoigne having to accept jobs offered to him when he was logged into the app even though he could log off from the app at any time.
