ABSTRACT
The article focuses on whether tribunals should adopt a purely contractual test, or a reality test, in determining employees' status according to the case Autoclenze versus Belcher and others filed in Great Britain. It details the reason why a worker can also be an employee. The Court of Appeals has ruled that tribunals did not have to find an intention to mislead to displace a written agreement.
