Pay and Benefits Magazine published an article on 19 December 2012 discussing recent employment tribunal cases including that of Suhail v Herts Urgent Care [2012] All ER (D) 334 (Nov).

The article summarises that "The worker was an out-of-hours General Practitioner (GP) he made a claim for protected disclosure detriment or breach of contract. However there was a doubt over whether he was an employee or a worker."

The article explains that "The respondent was a charitable company which provided out-of-office GP services throughout Hertfordshire. The respondent had more than 250 GPs on its books and regarded them as self-employed. The respondent provided its services from premises that were used for other purposes during the day. The appellant also worked for the out-of-hours GP services in East London. The out-of-hours GPs were not employed by the Primary Care Trust bought by the respondent. When the appellant applied to work with the respondent he would show a service level agreement (SLA) which formed the basis of his arrangement with the respondent. The SLA provided inter-alia that the GPs were self-employed responsible for their own tax and had agreed to work under that SLA."

The appellant had complained about potential health and safety risks caused by drivers who drove while using mobile phones or satellite navigation systems. The appellant had apparently remonstrated with the drivers and the drivers had complained to the respondent. This resulted in the appellant been informed that he would not be allowed to work further shifts."

The article concludes by telling us that "the tribunal found that it had been quite clear that the appellant understood the arrangement to which he had agreed" and both the claim and later appeal were dismissed.
