Tilson v Alstom Transport [2011] IRLR 169 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Employment status: Implication of employment contract between worker and end user not necessary

    20 April 2011

    In Tilson v Alstom Transport [2011] IRLR 169 CA, the Court of Appeal held that there was no basis for the employment tribunal to imply a contract of employment between an agency worker and the end user. The fact that the claimant had rejected offers of just such a permanent contract on more than one occasion was a powerful factor pointing away from an employment relationship.
