Race discrimination: Motive does not equate with "grounds"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Amnesty International v Ahmed [2009] IRLR 884 EAT, the EAT held that, where an employer's refusal to promote an employee was essentially because of her national/ethnic origin, the employer's benign motive for its conduct was irrelevant. Nagarajan v London Regional Transport did not establish a requirement to enquire as to the employer's reasons for racially based less favourable treatment.
