It's very technical, but the upshot is another company that wanted to take all the money, but shirk all the responsibility has been caught out.

Of course these cases are exactly the sorts of cases we can well do without when we've scrapped all our employment rights. It's very un-British to allow selfish employees to hinder company profits this way.

The employee seemed happy with the contract until he wasn't.

There are many firms that could be making significant changes because of this. Many taxi drivers work under this scheme as do Uber drivers.

Well no actually, not in this case, 'self employment' was simply used as a more effective way of controlling and administering a mobile workforce working without close supervision. It was a perfectly legitimate (and seemingly fair) arrangement, except that they don't seem to have paid for a competent lawyer to write their contracts and explain the boundaries of the contractor/subcontractor arrangement they were trying to achieve.
