Duncan McAdam v Boxpak Limited - commercial agent, Scottish Court of Session 16.2.06
The claimant claimed to be a "commercial agent" within the meaning of Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993, SI 1993/3053 reg 2. If that was so he claimed he was entitled under reg 17 to compensation for termination without notice. However the Regulations do not apply to "persons whose activities as commercial agents are to be considered secondary". The Court of Session ruled that this covered Mr McAdam and so he could not bring a claim under the regulations.
