    Kang v RF Brookes Ltd [1999] ET/1900838/98 (0 other reports)

A Sikh woman, who was moved to a lower-status job away from food production because she wore a metal bracelet - the "kara" - in line with her religious beliefs, was not indirectly discriminated against, holds a Leicester employment tribunal (Chair: J A Threlfell) in Kang v RF Brookes Ltd.

Mrs Kang, a Sikh, was employed from 1981 as a production operative by the respondent, which cooked and chilled food mainly for supply to Marks & Spencer.
