    Coker v Diocese of Southwark [1998] ICR 140 CA (0 other reports)

In Coker v Diocese of Southwark and others 11.7.97 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that an industrial tribunal had no jurisdiction to entertain an unfair dismissal complaint from an assistant curate, since he was not an "employee". No contract of any kind existed between the assistant curate and the diocese in which he worked, or with anyone else.
