Nelson v Emmanual Parochial Church Council & anor  EAT
Mrs Nelson brought a tribunal claim against the Emmanual PCC. The precise nature of the claim is not clear from the EAT judgment but it clearly depended on Mrs Nelson being an "employee". She maintained that she was an employee of the PCC but this was denied. At a preliminary hearing, a tribunal chairman decided to add a Canon George Ansah as a possible employer. Although the Reverend Ansah was unaware that he had been added as a respondent, the tribunal chairman concluded that he was Mrs Nelson's employer.
