    Date:
    1 September 1988

    In London Borough of Barking & Dagenham v Camara (11.7.88) EOR21I, the EAT holds that it is an error of law for an industrial tribunal to regard the burden of disproving direct discrimination as being on the employer once the applicant has shown less favourable treatment in circumstances which are consistent with that treatment being on racial grounds.
