    Meikle v Nottingham City Council EAT/249/92 (0 other reports)

A well-qualified Afro-Caribbean woman did not suffer indirect race discrimination when she failed to secure a post in a department where all the staff had always been white, holds the EAT in Meikle v Nottinghamshire City Council. Although experience of the department's work was considered to be highly desirable, the complainant's lack of that experience did not constitute an "absolute bar" to employment.
