    Bouzida v Sheffield City Council [1992] IT/41493/91 (0 other reports)

In Bouzida v Sheffield City Council a Sheffield industrial tribunal (Chair: J S Wolstenholme) rejects Sheffield Council's argument that it was a coincidence that the successful candidates for posts providing services to four different ethnic minority groups should be from those groups. It rules that the ethnic origins of the candidates had played a part in the selection process and that an unsuccessful Tunisian candidate who was not from one of the relevant groups was unlawfully discriminated against on grounds of race.
