Bayode v The Chief Constable of Derbyshire EAT/0499/07
Reports relating to this case:
Race discrimination: Entries in notebooks about officer's conduct did not subject him to a detriment
- 11 August 2008
In Bayode v The Chief Constable of Derbyshire EAT/0499/07, the EAT held that, where alleged less favourable treatment consisted of accurate written records made by colleagues in their personal notebooks about aspects of a black police officer's behaviour that were of concern to them, the employment tribunal was entitled to find on the facts that the officer had no justified sense of grievance about the making of the entries and therefore had not suffered any detriment.
- 12 June 2008
The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that the act of making a written record can not in itself amount to a detriment under race discrimination legislation.
