Lord of the Rings model maker James Bryson, who won a landmark court case that ruled he was an employee and not a self-employed contractor, has been awarded costs of $38,000 by the Supreme Court. In June, the court confirmed he was an employee of Lord of the Rings production company Three Foot Six when he was made redundant in 2001. This cleared the way for Mr Bryson to pursue a personal grievance case against Three Foot Six. The case is to be heard by the Employment Relations Authority. [More]
