|Contract of employment|
Hall v Lorimer  EWCA Civ 25 is a UK labour law case concerning the scope of protection for people to employment rights. It took the view that an employment contract requires regard to be had to the degree of dependency of the employee.
Mr Lorimer received £32,875 for his employment and incurred expenses of £9,250. He was a television technician working for 20 separate companies on short term jobs.
Nolan LJ held that he was self-employed and could therefore set his expenses off against his income. He said what is partly relevant to employment status is,
|“||the extent to which the individual is dependant or independent of a particular paymaster for the financial exploitation of his talents.||”|
