LLP Members Are “Workers”

LLP Members Are “Workers”

The Supreme Court has ruled this week on the status of LLP Members and decided that they are workers. This should be of concern to any company structured as an LLP as members now have all the rights associated with worker status; such as rights to protection for whistleblowing, working time rights and counting as far as auto enrolment is concerned.

LLP’s are advised to review their agreements with members to avoid problems in the future and threats from disgruntled members.

The case is Clyde and Co LLP v Bates Van Winklehof.
