R (on the application of the British Broadcasting Corporation) v Central Arbitration Committee [2003] IRLR 460 HC

Reports relating to this case:

  • Trade union recognition: Regulation by supervisory body is not an essential requirement of "professional" activity

    Date:
    17 October 2003

    In R (on the application of the British Broadcasting Corporation) v Central Arbitration Committee, the High Court holds that in considering the definition of "worker" under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, a CAC panel erred in holding that, in order for a group of workers to be exercising a "professional" activity, that group must be subject to regulation by a body covering those engaged in that particular activity.
