Reports relating to this case:

  • Same race discrimination

    Date:
    1 December 2000

    The EAT in Graham v London Borough of Barnet has held that although it cannot be assumed that individuals of the same racial group will not discriminate against each other on racial grounds, the fact that the alleged discriminator and the person discriminated against are of the same racial group can be taken into account.

  • Race discrimination: People may discriminate on racial grounds against those of their own racial group

    Date:
    15 August 2000

    While it cannot be assumed that two individuals of the same racial group will not discriminate against each other on racial grounds, the sameness is a factor that an employment tribunal may properly take into account in determining whether or not there has in fact been discrimination on racial grounds, holds the EAT in Graham v London Borough of Barnet.
