Additional award against Hackney

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Chan v London Borough of Hackney a London North employment tribunal (Chair: P R K Menon) that had earlier awarded compensation of £114,000 to the applicant, who had been discriminated against on grounds of race by Hackney Council, orders the authority to pay additional compensation of £8,500 for its failure to comply with a recommendation to agree a reference.

David Chan successfully complained of race discrimination by Hackney Council, and in November 1996 he was awarded £114,000 (plus £16,000 interest) in compensation (DCLD31R).
