At a Preliminary Hearing in April 2018 the Employment Tribunal will determine whether Jess Varnish, former GB Olympian, is an employee of UK Sport & British Cycling, and therefore entitled to bring claims of sex discrimination, detriment for whistleblowing, victimisation and unfair dismissal.

This is a further example of where employee status is being challenged in the tribunal, with potentially huge ramifications.
