Glasgow City Council v Johnstone & Anor  UKEAT 0011/18
Foster carers under new arrangement were employees
In this appeal, Glasgow City Council sought to argue that the ET erred in holding that the relationship between foster carers and the Council who placed children with them, was contractual in nature. The Council sought to argue that the relationship was based on statute and that because of this the relationship was non-contractual. The model under which the foster carers worked differed in nature from that used for ordinary foster care arrangements.
