UK: England and Wales: judgment in Winkelhof due next week - is a member of an LLP a worker?

The Supreme Court has announced that judgment wil be given next Wednesday in Clyde & Co LLP v Winkelhof. The issue before the court, to quote directly from its summary of the case, was whether a member of a limited liability partnership was a worker within the meaning of section 230(3) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and therefore within the category of persons protected by the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 and permitted to bring a whistleblowing claim.
