    Shaw v Shropshire County Premier Football League and another [2004] All ER (D) 98 (Sep) EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In Jeffrey-Shaw v Shropshire County Premier Football League and another, the EAT holds:

  • An employment tribunal was right to find that it had no jurisdiction to consider a race discrimination complaint brought under s.12 of the Race Relations Act 1976 by an amateur footballer who had been suspended from playing because of misconduct. The circumstances of this case did not relate to employment, even in a wide sense.
