National Gallery sued in latest employment status case
On 26 November 2018 27 artists and lecturers will take the National Gallery to court alleging they were dismissed after decades working for the gallery and it arguing they were self-employed. The group argues that they worked with regularity, were paid via the payroll, taxed at source and were required to attend employee training. Lawyers say the case will decide a point of law - whether workers are entitled to collective consultation prior to termination of a contract - not considered by previous gig economy cases.Link to article
