UPVC Designs Ltd (t/a Croston Conservatories) v (1) Latimer (2) Millar - A contract of employment must contain an element of control so as to make one party the "master"  EAT
Mrs Millar worked as a sales consultant for Croston. Croston trained her, provided equipment, and passed her "leads" on potential sales when it could; Mrs Millar could reject or accept them but if she accepted was obliged to follow up. She was paid only commission, worked hours of her choosing, had to cover her own expenses and paid her own tax and national insurance. When Croston ended the arrangement after some three years, Mrs Millar claimed unfair dismissal.
