Morrison v ODS Business Services Ltd, Thamesdown SDC Ltd and DTI - Controlling director not an employee  EAT
Mr Morrison worked for Thamesdown SDC Ltd. He was a director and majority shareholder of the company and also had a contract with it. Thamesdown became insolvent and another company, ODS, took over its business. Mr Morrision had various potential claims against both Thamesdown and ODS and also against the DTI. It was a pre-requisite of all those claims that he could show he had been an "employee" (within the meaning of ERA 1996 s.230) of Thamesdown.
