    Brighton Borough Council and Bishop v Richards [1993] EAT/431/92 (0 other reports)

In Brighton Borough Council and Bishop v Richards an industrial tribunal was entitled to draw an inference of racial discrimination from the employer's failure to introduce monitoring of its equal opportunities policy, according to the EAT.

Judy Richards, a black woman, was found to have been discriminated against on grounds of race when she was not appointed to a post as information officer with the council's housing department.
