In Grady v HM Prison Service, the Court of Appeal holds that the EAT erred in holding that a bankrupt had no standing to pursue a complaint of unfair dismissal. Such a complaint, by virtue of its nature and potential remedies, is personal to the complainant. It is not a "thing in action" which vests by law in the trustee in bankruptcy.
