CA judgment in Westwood v Hospital Medical Group

By judgment handed down on 24th July 2012, the CA held that that a hair transplant surgeon who was “clearly in business on his own account” and who contracted with HMG in the course of that business, was nevertheless a worker, and as a result was entitled to claim 6 years of holiday pay and claim unlawful deductions from wages.

The decision is likely to be of interest to businesses and public sector organisations which engage self-employed persons as part of their business model, and may now find themselves exposed to potentially costly claims.

Barristers from Henderson Chambers: Patrick Green QC, Kathleen Donnelly and James Williams.
