Halawi v WDFG UK Ltd (t/a) World Duty Free)  EWCA Civ 1387
Beauty consultant was not an employee
In Halawi v WDFG the issue on appeal was whether Ms Halawi, who provided her services through an employee-controlled company to a service company, was an employee. She sought to establish that she was an employee, not of either of those companies, or the client of the service company for whom the service company provided her services but of WDF, which managed the workplace for the client for whom her services were engaged. In effect, WDF provided retail space where the beauty products were sold. She brought her claim under the Equality Act 2010 when her airside pass was withdrawn, alleging that she had been unfairly discriminated against.
