Robson v Commissioners of Inland Revenue and others  IRLR 186 EAT
Reports relating to this case:
- 15 April 1998
An industrial tribunal was wrong to give any weight to the fact that the respondents were related by marriage to members of particular races or ethnic groups in determining that it was unlikely that they would have indulged in the racist abuse of a work colleague from a different race or ethnic group, holds the EAT in Robson v Commissioners of Inland Revenue and others.
- 1 January 1998
In Robson v Commissioners of the Inland Revenue (11 November 1997) EOR77D, the EAT holds that evidence that a respondent was related by marriage to someone from an ethnic minority was not probative of whether they made a racially abusive remark to an Irish person.
