In this paper I seek to pick up on three specific areas which have recently been under the spotlight.

  • The status of partners is due to be examined by the Supreme Court on 24 March 2014 in Bates van Winkelhof v Clyde & Co.
  • Employment status of the clergy has generated a large body of recent case law – but does it generate principles of wider significance?
  • The role of politics in employment law has been most starkly seen in the last year with employment fees. In the area of employment status we have had the introduction of “employee shareholders” – the level of take up is not clear. Looking to the future the topic of zero hours contracts - which are undoubtedly very widely used – continues to be of significant interest.
