The Court of Appeal has handed down its judgment in a recent case involving Pimilico Plumbers.

The Court of Appeal upheld the decision that the plumbers employed by Pimlico plumbers are workers, not self-employed contractors.

It is fact sensitive case, the judgment considers - in detail - the evidence and contractual documentation that Mr Smith worked under when at Pimlico Plumbers. The case is likely to be a leading case on employment status in future years. Importantly, the Court of Appeal gives a clear summary of the principles for the 'personal service' aspect of the employment status tests at paragraph 84.
