It was made expressly clear through ‘The Delivery agreement’ signed by all parties, including the claimant's college, that the agreement did not constitute a contract of employment between any of the participating persons or organisations. The respondent became increasingly concerned in relation to the claimant’s errors at work, both in terms of their number and seriousness and a number of concerning incidents were cited. After voicing his concerns with the College, the respondent claimed that he was advised to ‘let him go’.
