Market Investigations Ltd v Minister of Social Security

QB [1968] 3 ALL ER 732

A market research company appealed against a DSS ruling that one of its workers should be treated as an employee, contending that she was self-employed.

It was held that the worker was employed as it was the market research company and the arrangement bore no resemblance to that of a self-employed person in business on their own account. The worker had little or no control over what she did on a day to day basis (she was told what to do and how to do it).
