Race discrimination: Complaint about refusal of registration was in time

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Rovenska v General Medical Council [1997] IRLR 367, the Court of Appeal holds that, if the GMC's requirement that a Czech-qualified doctor should pass a test to be eligible to apply for limited registration was inherently discriminatory, it would be committing an act of unlawful race discrimination each time it refused to allow the doctor limited registration without first taking the test. An industrial tribunal had jurisdiction to hear the doctor's complaint of unlawful race discrimination because it was lodged within three months of the GMC's last refusal.
