The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission will not appeal a decision to have sacked harness racing chief steward David Farquharson reinstated.

It has opened the door for Farquharson to return to work this week.

The Queensland Industrial Relations Commission’s deputy president Adrian Bloomfield last week ordered Farquharson be reinstated as of his sacking date of February 24, 2017.

It was further ordered Farquharson be paid any money lost through the sacking and that his contract of employment be deemed to be continuous.

Farquharson was sacked by the QRIC commissioner Ross Barnett after originally being stood down from his post in December 2016.

The QIRC hearing was told the dismissal followed allegations made about Farquharson’s behaviour in the third day of stewards’ inquiry in July 2016.

Those allegations were the basis of a Crime and Corruption Commission hearing which referred the matter back to Barnett.

After two show cause notices were issued to Farquharson by Barnett he was dismissed.

Farquharson denied any dishonesty and wrong doing and took his case to the QIRC which ruled in his favour.

QRIC has four weeks from the date the decision was handed down to appeal.

But a spokesman for QRIC has confirmed it will appeal and that Barnett would be making no public statement at this time.
