    Hussain v Alfred Brown (Worsted Mills) Ltd [1999] ET/1805479/98 (0 other reports)

A textile company which offered a trial to a fictitious applicant purporting to be a white person, whilst not even replying to an Asian applicant with greater experience, unlawfully discriminated on grounds of race, holds a Leeds employment tribunal (Chair: J M Q Hepworth) in Hussain v Alfred Brown (Worsted Mills) Ltd. In so holding, the tribunal took account of the fact that none of the company's 70 employees were from ethnic minorities despite it being located on the border with Bradford.
