You will have seen in the press, that companies such as Uber, Hermes, Addison Lee and now Amazon, have and are currently being brought to task for unpaid benefits that were due, but they did not pay.

Following the case of King v Sash Window Workshop Ltd, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), stated that a worker (even if the employer incorrectly believes that they are self-employed), must be allowed to accrue paid annual leave rights until termination of the arrangement between the worker and engager.

> Were you under supervision, direction or control from another person?

> Were you provided with equipment such as a laptop etc.?

> Were you required to pre-book holidays?
