The employment status of an individual is important to identify correctly, as it is this which dictates their employment entitlements. For example, it is only employees who qualify for the right not to be unfairly dismissed, or a redundancy payment. The area is complicated as the tests are not clear cut, and the different categories of employment status can overlap. Employment tribunal decisions in this area are highly fact sensitive. This course sets out the fundamental principles from which the factual analysis can be conducted.
