An employer's failure to take prompt action to protect and support a black probation officer exposed to "racially-based antagonism" from clients was unlawful discrimination, rules a Prestatyn industrial tribunal (Chair: S J Williams) in Jeffers v North Wales Probation Committee. It awards £3,500 compensation.
