Addison Lee – Following one of our latest blogs – ‘Uber drivers are workers not self-employed, Supreme Court rules’ which we published on 19th February 2021, we have now learnt that Addison Lee drivers are also workers and not self-employed, and are therefore entitled to the national minimum wage and holiday pay, the Court of Appeal has confirmed. An article in Personnel today – 23rd April 2021, discusses further.
Employers when employing people need to make sure that they ensure it is fully investigated what status the new recruit will be & whether this is Employee, Worker or Self-Employed.
We have found on many occassion’s that when employers / businesses are wishing to grow and now need support to move forward that we have to have a detailed discussion with them to find out what would be the best solution & benefit to their company. To find out the benefits of each of the types please refer to our blog which discusses the employment rights for each job type and how to work out somebody’s status.

Recruitment and ensuring this is carried out correctly is a vital necessity when recruiting people as recruitment of the wrong person can lead to performance issues, grievances, increased costs, and lowering of morale in the existing workforce. Such people are likely to be disengaged, unlikely to give off their best, and end up leaving voluntarily or involuntarily when their unsuitability becomes evident. The costs involved can range from £10k – £30k.
