Adam Ohringer represents music teacher found not self-employed

Adam Ohringer


Adam Ohringer successfully represented a music teacher who had worked at St Francesca Cabrini Primary School for over two decades.  The school insisted that he was self-employed and not entitled to any employment rights.

Following a hard-fought hearing before Employment Judge Nash in the Croydon Employment Tribunal, the teacher was found to have been an employee throughout.  He had been required to teach to the school’s timetable and was expected to do so every term.  The teacher’s work was also under the school’s control notwithstanding that he was treated differently in some respects to other teachers who were on the school’s payroll.

Adam was instructed by Cristina Corriero at Tower Hamlets Law Centre.
