    Hartup v Sandwell Metropolitan Council [1993] EAT/479/92 (0 other reports)

In Hartup v Sandwell Metropolitan Council the EAT has dismissed an appeal against a finding that a racial group defined as "Afro-Caribbean/Asian" was too wide to form the basis of a genuine occupational qualification.

In 1991, the council advertised for "Afro-Caribbean/Asian" home-helps because only 16 of its 740 home-helps were black and there were a growing number of elderly Afro-Caribbean and Asian clients.
