Bone v North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust: CA 1 Feb 2016

The appellant was a political activist in the ‘Workers of England Union’ and a nurse employed by the respondent. He alleged race discrimination, and detriment for his membership of what he said was an independent trade union, saying that the employer had not protected him against allegations made by co-workers that the WEU was racist. Some complaints were found to be proved, but on appeal the EAT said they had no jurisdiction to hear an appeal under section 146.
