Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police and another v Hope [1999] ICR 338 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Race and sex discrimination: Good intentions behind discriminatory remark could be relevant to remedies

    Date:
    1 June 1999

    The good intentions behind a senior police officer's suggestion to a white police sergeant that his brief sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female trainee of Asian origin could have jeopardised police relations with the Asian community were not relevant to the question of whether or not the sergeant had suffered unlawful race and sex discrimination, but could be pertinent to the issue of remedy, holds the EAT in Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police and another v Hope.
