Consistent Group Ltd v Kalwak & Others - reasoning to support tribunal's conclusions must be clear in its judgment - Court of Appeal 29.4.08
This case concerned the employment status of agency workers. The original employment tribunal held that certain terms of the contract between the agency (Consistent) and their end user client were a "sham". The claim that the agency workers themselves were self-employed was rejected and Consistent was held to be their employer. On appeal, the EAT upheld that finding (see EAT 18 May 2007). Consistent appealed to the Court of Appeal.
