Notable Cases


Bone v North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust - Court of Appeal
The case concerned some important issues relating to trade union law, in particular whether in a claim under s.146 of TULR(C)A 1992 there is a jurisdictional prerequisite for a claimant to produce a certificate of independence of the relevant trade union and secondly whether any such certificate can have retrospective effect. There are also some case management issues as to whether the EAT is entitled to raise such issues on appeal.
