    Lawrence v JL Distribution Ltd [2000] ET/3200327/00 (0 other reports)

In Lawrence v JL Distribution Ltd a Stratford employment tribunal (Chair: VK Gay) awards compensation of £10,000 for psychiatric injury and injury to feelings to a black worker who suffered racial abuse and was dismissed because his white co-workers did want a black man on the premises.

Mr Lawrence, a black man of Afro-Caribbean origin, began work as a night-shift forklift truck driver unloading large freezer lorries at the respondent's London depot.
