Foster carers are the next battleground in the debate concerning worker status

FOSTER

The Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) are supporting a number of foster carers who allege that they are “workers” and as such entitled to significant compensation for holiday pay.  An article from the BBC outlining one element of this litigation is available here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41543651.  Cloisters’ barristers, Robin Allen QC and Dee Masters, will be supporting the IWGB in these cases.
