What my eight-year legal battle says about the gig-economy and workers’ rights in the UK

After nearly a decade fighting an intense legal battle with a former employee, last week an employment tribunal in Croydon came down in favour of my company concluding that he was not entitled to an eye-watering ?74,000 worth of holiday pay. I detail the story, including the impact it had on my family values driven business. This true tale, rife with liberty taking, shows how the rights of SMEs themselves must be defended as much as those of the employees who work for them.
