    Bowry v (1) Samson (2) Leicestershire Health Authority [1992] IT/22873/91 (0 other reports)

A health authority employee who was allegedly subjected to racist remarks by an employee of a firm contracted to provide the authority with services could not bring a race discrimination claim against the contractor's employee, as he was neither employed by the authority nor acting as the authority's agent, rules a Leicester industrial tribunal (Chair: A C Tickle) in Bowry v (1) Samson (2) Leicestershire Health Authority.

Ms Bowry is employed by Leicestershire Health Authority as a health promotion officer.
