    FW Farnsworth Ltd v McCoid [1999] IRLR 626 CA (0 other reports)

The action of an employer in derecognising an employee as a shop steward of his union was capable in law of being regarded as action, short of dismissal, taken against him as an individual within the meaning of s.146(1) of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, holds the Court of Appeal in FW Farnsworth Ltd v McCoid 23.3.99 Court of Appeal. Whether or not it was, on all the facts, correct to regard that action as such was a question to be answered by an employment tribunal.
