Director / shareholder status claims stayed

All Employment Tribunal claims depending on the status of majority shareholders / directors are being stayed until the Court of Appeal gives its judgment in Secretary of State for BERR v Neufeld. My prediction is that the court will uphold the notion that these people can be treated as employees where the contractual relationship is explicit, consistent with the parties’ situation, and not a sham. But we’ll wait and see!
