No, says the Court of Appeal in today's judgment in Bates van Winkelhof v Clyde & Co LLP, overturning the Employment Appeal Tribunal's earlier decision that a former LLP member of the international law firm, Clyde & Co was a worker for the purposes of claims for whistle-blowing, sex and pregnancy discrimination. This case has major implications for all LLP members.
