Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd [1999] IRLR 683 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Race discrimination: Decision to ignore racial motive for attack amounted to direct race discrimination

    Date:
    15 June 1999

    An employment tribunal, properly directing itself, would be bound to conclude that an employer's deliberate decision to disregard the fact that an attack on one employee by another was racially motivated amounted in itself to direct race discrimination, without the need for the employee to show that a person from a different racial group would have been treated differently, holds the EAT in Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd.

  • No comparator required for race-specific conduct

    Date:
    1 June 1999

    The EAT has ruled in Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd that conduct which is race-specific is less favourable treatment on grounds of race without the need for any comparison.
