Re: Rigged definition of an employee

@NeilPost: "Self-evidently the “employer” is you."

Self-evidently, the employer in this case is the Nationwide - the court just said so. Therefore, it doesn't matter that neither the employer or the employee thought the relationship was different - they were wrong. The employee has a *right* under EU law to four weeks' holiday for every year he was employed, or pay in lieu. He was also entitled to sick pay at a rate not less than the statutory minimum, regardless of any insurance he had.

And what is it with you and Porsche Macans, FFS?
