Connolly v Sellers Arenascene Ltd: CA 2 Feb 2001

The fact that a director held a majority shareholding in a company was not enough of itself to say he was not an employee. It is an important factor, but the tribunal must look at all the factors. The tribunal having decided that the director’s service agreement was not a sham, it was inevitable they should conclude he was an employee, and had the right not to be unfairly dismissed.
