    Akhter v Family Services Unit [1996] EAT/1285/95 (0 other reports)

Each refusal of an employee's request to use a contractual grievance procedure could be regarded as a separate act for time limit purposes where a different person took the decision, the EAT has ruled in Akhter v Family Services Unit.

Ms Akhter submitted an industrial tribunal application on 10 March 1995, claiming that she had been discriminated against on grounds of race by her employer when it refused to allow her to use the grievance procedure under her contract of employment after she had submitted a questionnaire under the Race Relations Act 1976 (RRA) for completion.
