Enhanced protection following Supreme Court "worker" status decision

LLP clients will be familiar with the recent Supreme Court decision in the well-publicised case of Clyde & Co v Bates van Winkelhof, which focused on the entitlement of "workers" in relation to the whistleblowing provisions of the Employment Rights Act.

This note examines the practical implications of the judgment for LLPs, particularly with regards to:

  • working time;
  • national minimum wage;
  • other workers' statutory rights;
  • auto-enrolment; and
  • whistleblowing.
