    Armitage v (1) Relate (2) Heller (3) National Relate [1994] IT/43538/94 (0 other reports)

In Armitage v (1) Relate (2) Heller (3) National Relate a Middlesborough industrial tribunal (Chair: N W Garside) holds that a volunteer counsellor with the marriage guidance organisation, Relate, is in "employment" and is therefore protected against discrimination on the grounds of race by the Race Relations Act. It rejects the submission that it would be against public policy to apply the Act to the voluntary sector.
