Race discrimination: Employer liable for third-party harassment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Burton and Rhule v De Vere Hotels [1996] IRLR 596, the EAT holds that an employer "subjected" its employees to unlawful race discrimination when it allowed a speaker and guests at its hotel to abuse and harass them racially, in circumstances in which it had sufficient control over the discriminatory event so as to have been able to prevent or reduce the extent of it by applying good employment practice.

The Pennine Hotel in Derby is managed by De Vere Hotels.
