Talk:Colin Blackburn, Baron Blackburn
There is an 'employment status' case called R v Negus, and in this case Baron Blackburn is said to have stated that:
". . . the test is very much this, whether the person is charged and bound to obey the orders of his Master. He may be so without being bound to devote the whole of his time to this service; but IF bound to devote his whole time to it, that may be very strong evidence of his/her being under control."
It seems to me that this is a notable quotation, so when I can get to the law library I intend to find out for definite what was said in 1873, when Colin Blackburn gave judgement in this case. 188.8.131.52 13:02, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
