Unreasonable behaviour may justify inference

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Anya v University of Oxford the Court of Appeal has ruled that where an employer behaves unreasonably towards a black employee, it is an error of law for a tribunal to direct itself that an inference of race discrimination is not to be drawn, without more, because the employer might very well behave in a similarly unreasonable fashion to a white employee.

Dr Anya, a black Nigerian permanently resident in the UK, applied for a post as a post-doctoral research assistant.
