    Singh v London Borough of Ealing [1995] IT/28914/89 (0 other reports)

An Asian job applicant who was rejected despite being "the outstanding candidate" for a jobshare vacancy that could have been "tailor-made" for him, was unlawfully discriminated against, holds a London (North) industrial tribunal (Chair: P R K Menon) in Singh v London Borough of Ealing. It finds that the interview panel wanted someone who would fit in more easily with the other jobsharer, a white female, and awards £10,000 compensation for injury to feelings.
