    1 December 1998

    In Yeboah v (1) Crofton and (2) London Borough of Hackney a former council official who unlawfully discriminated against a black colleague is ordered by a Stratford employment tribunal (Chair: J Scannell) to pay compensation of £45,000 (plus £14,000 interest) for injury to feelings, including aggravated damages. This is believed to be the highest award ever made in a race case against an individual who was not an employer.
