Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology  IRLR 602 CA
Reports relating to this case:
- 1 September 2000
The Court of Appeal in Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd accepts that conduct which is race-specific is less favourable treatment on grounds of race without the need for any comparison, but overrules a finding that there was race-specific conduct in this case.
- 15 June 2000
In Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd v Sidhu, the Court of Appeal holds that an employer's application of its disciplinary policy of disregarding all provocation when deciding what penalty to impose, to a Sikh employee who had reacted violently to a racial attack on him, was not race-specific conduct. That could not result in a finding of less favourable treatment of the employee on racial grounds than other persons without proof of more favourable treatment of comparators in the same circumstances.
