Same race discrimination

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The EAT in Graham v London Borough of Barnet has held that although it cannot be assumed that individuals of the same racial group will not discriminate against each other on racial grounds, the fact that the alleged discriminator and the person discriminated against are of the same racial group can be taken into account.

Ms Graham, who is black and of Afro-Caribbean origin, claimed that she had been racially discriminated against by her line manager, Miss Bennett, who is also of Afro-Caribbean origin, when she decided to discipline her for misconduct.
