In Perera v (1) Civil Service Commission (2) The Department of Customs and Excise  IRLR 147 EAT, the EAT held that the Industrial Tribunal had erred in rejecting the appellant's claim that in failing to consider his application to be an administrative trainee on grounds of his age the respondents had unlawfully discriminated against him contrary to the Race Relations Act 1976. In applying an upper age limit of 32 for applicants to be considered for selection as an administrative trainee the respondents had indirectly discriminated against him within the meaning of section1(1)(b) of the Act.
