The #SupremeCourt has rejected Pimlico Plumbers' appeal. Significant #gigeconomy case on whether person is a 'worker' (entitled to holiday, discrim protection, etc) or a mere contractor (entitled only to the terms of their contract). supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-201… #ukemplaw (1/10) Having said it’s significant, there’s not an awful lot of new law in there. It’s largely significant because this is (I think?) the first time in the recent spate of gig economy cases that the Supreme Court has got involved. (2/10)
