Race discrimination: Concessionaires' employees were contract workers

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Industrial tribunals had jurisdiction to hear complaints of unlawful race discrimination against Harrods by employees of concessionaires from whom Harrods withdrew approval to work in its store, and a different tribunal erred in law in concluding that Harrods' refusal of such approval to a prospective employee of another concessionaire did not constitute unlawful race discrimination, holds the EAT in Harrods Ltd v Remick and others [1997] IRLR 9 397/95, 836/94 and 567/95. The concessionaires supplied the individuals concerned under concessionary licence agreements made with Harrods, and the work that was available for doing by those individuals was work "for" Harrods even though they also worked for the concessionaires.
