    Shoye v Syntegra Ltd [1999] ET/3103789/98 (0 other reports)

A Nigerian job applicant who had his job offer withdrawn when it was found that he was not a British passport holder, even though he had the right to live and work in the UK, was unlawfully discriminated against, rules a Southampton employment tribunal (Chair: I A Edwards) in Shoye v Syntegra Ltd.

Mr Shoye, who has worked for some years in this country in the computer business, is a Nigerian passport holder with the legal right to work and live in the UK.
