    Tchoula v Netto Foodstores Ltd EAT/1378/96 (0 other reports)

In Tchoula v Netto Foodstores Ltd the EAT has issued general guidance to employment tribunals when dealing with race or sex discrimination cases.

Mr Justice Morison took the opportunity of this decision to urge tribunals to keep the following points in mind:

"(1) Whether justified or not, it is a fact that many people of minority ethnic origin distrust the judicial system and do not believe that they are likely to receive a fair trial of their complaints. Industrial tribunals should be particularly careful in the way they approach complaints made by people of such background, so as to make sure that they give no grounds for the belief that a case has not been approached in an entirely even-handed manner.
