Plastering Contractors Stanmore Ltd v Holden  UKEAT 0074_14_0707
Change to ‘labour-only subcontractor’ status did not preclude ‘worker’ status
A worker, for the purposes of claiming holiday pay, is defined as someone working under a contract of employment or any other contract where he undertakes to do or perform personally any work for another party. In PCS Ltd v Holden, Mr Holden brought a claim for unlawful deduction from wages under s.23 ERA 1996 in relation to several years of work as a labour-only subcontractor, prior to which he had been employed by PCS as a general labourer. As a labour only subcontractor Mr Holden was placed by PCS on its database of labour-only subcontractors.
