Louise Rea writes on legal implications of Forstater case for Charity Finance

Following the ruling in Forstater v CGD Europe & Center for Global Development in December 2019, Louise Rea, Senior Associate in our employment team, has written a concise briefing for Charity Finance outlining the key outcomes of the judgment.

In her article Louise begins with an overview of the background to the case. She then provides readers with a summary of why it is so significant, a description of previous cases which touch on the issues raised and conclusions on where the case goes from here.

Louise’s perspective is especially valuable given that she acted for CGD Europe in this matter, and is uniquely well-placed to explain the legal specifics which underpin the ruling handed down by Employment Judge Tayler.
