    Nwoke v (1) Government Legal Service and (2) Civil Service Commissioners [1996] IT/43021/94 (0 other reports)

In Nwoke v (1) Government Legal Service and (2) Civil Service Commissioners a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) awards £2,000 for injury to feelings and £1,000 aggravated damages to a black female solicitor unlawfully discriminated against on grounds of race and sex by the Government Legal Service when she was marked so low after an interview that she was effectively barred from applying for such a post again. The tribunal also recommended that the service, whose behaviour had been "dismissive and insulting", interview the applicant for future vacancies, using a panel properly trained in issues of race and sex bias.
