This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Bradford Hospitals NHS Trust v Al-Shabib [2003] IRLR 4 EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

  • In Bradford Hospitals NHS Trust v Al-Shabib [2003] IRLR 4, the EAT holds that less favourable treatment, rather than mere unreasonable treatment, is required for a finding of race discrimination.
  • The employment tribunal was wrong to assume that a particular ethnic group was endowed with a specific characteristic in the absence of some evidential basis for that assumption.
