  • Race discrimination: Dismissal of BNP councillor was not 'on racial grounds'

    21 July 2006

    In Serco Ltd v Redfearn [2006] EWCA Civ 659 CA, the Court of Appeal holds that an employer did not discriminate on grounds of race when it dismissed an employee because of fears that his membership of the BNP would lead to hostility, jeopardising the health and safety of staff and customers.
