Mrs H McGregor v Edinburgh Leisure - Relevance of characterisation by parties of employment status  EAT
Mrs McGregor worked as a fitness instructor for Edinburgh Leisure, but when new terms could not be agreed in 2005 she claimed she was unfairly dismissed. She regularly did work for other organisations. She had signed contracts entitled "consultancy agreements", and amended one to expressly state that she was paid gross and self-employed. The employment tribunal held that she was not an employee, particularly given this last point.
