This bulletin raises the stakes on the issue of “consultancy” arrangements between firm’s and Duty Solicitors over which there has been something of a Mexican stand-off of late. (We have had a couple of skirmishes so far but they look like being “handbags at 12 paces” by comparison to whats around the corner). Their missive is certainly to the point.

What do we mean by ‘employed’?
Employed is clarified in guidance and means a contract of employment for at least two full days a week. 
This includes partners and sole principals and excludes consultancy agreements.

How valid a definition this is will remain to be seen.
