Race discrimination: Application of unfair disciplinary policy was not race specific

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Aerospace Composite Technology Ltd v Sidhu 26.5.00 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that an employer's application of its disciplinary policy of disregarding all provocation when deciding what penalty to impose, to a Sikh employee who had reacted violently to a racial attack on him, was not race-specific conduct. That could not result in a finding of less favourable treatment of the employee on racial grounds than other persons without proof of more favourable treatment of comparators in the same circumstances.
