The Race Relations Act makes it unlawful to treat someone less favourably than a member of another racial group would be treated on racial grounds. The burden of proof is on the complainant to show (1) detrimental treatment, (2) that the treatment was less favourable than that accorded to someone of a different racial group, and (3) that the reason for the treatment was on grounds of race.
