Instron Ltd v Denny 7 June 1989 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Misconduct dismissal not on racial grounds

    Date:
    1 September 1989

    In Instron Ltd v Denny (7.6.89) EOR27C, the EAT holds that where a tribunal has found that the real reason for an employee's dismissal is misconduct, the dismissal could not be on racial grounds. This suggests that the EAT misunderstands fundamental principles of discrimination law.
