Kemeh v Ministry of Defence ET/3104095/10

race discrimination | liability for agents

In this case, an employer was held to be legally responsible for the discriminatory actions of another company's employee, who was found to be an agent of the employer under the Race Relations Act 1976. Under that Act (and the Equality Act 2010, which replaced it), an employer is liable for the conduct of another party where that party is acting as an agent under the employer's authority.
