Oyarce v Cheshire County Council

This report relates to 1 case(s)

race discrimination | victimisation | burden of proof

In Oyarce v Cheshire County Council EAT/0557/06, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that the reverse burden of proof does not apply in race victimisation cases.

Ms Oyarce claimed that she had been overlooked for promotion, the reason for this was that she had earlier brought a race discrimination claim against her employer, and that this, therefore, amounted to victimisation under the Race Relations Act 1976, section 2.
