Garry v London Borough of Ealing [2001] IRLR 681 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Race discrimination: Continued investigation of which employee was unaware was a detriment

    17 December 2001

    The Court of Appeal holds that when an employer continued an investigation into the activities of a black female employee for longer than an ordinary investigation would have taken, for reasons connected with her ethnic origin, the employer subjected her to a "detriment" within the meaning of the Race Relations Act 1976. We review the case of Garry v London Borough of Ealing.
