Reports relating to this case:

  • Drawing inferences of discrimination

    1 May 1990

    In Baker v Cornwall County Council (28 March 1990) EOR31B, the Court of Appeal rules that if discrimination takes place in circumstances which are consistent with the treatment being based on grounds of sex or race, the industrial tribunal should be prepared to draw the inference that the discrimination was on such grounds unless the alleged discriminator can satisfy the tribunal that there was some other innocent explanation.
