Race discrimination: Victimisation by ex-employer not covered by race relations act

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Nagarajan v Agnew and others, the EAT holds that an ex-employee had no remedy against his former employer under the Race Relations Act 1976, in respect of a complaint of victimisation. Moreover, an act of victimisation, by itself, is not unlawful unless it is accompanied by an infringement of one of the provisions under that part of the Act dealing with acts of discrimination in the employment field.

Between June 1979 and December 1988, Mr Nagarajan was employed as a station foreman by London Underground Ltd (LUL).
