Discrimination: Drawing inferences - the common-sense approach

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In King v The Great Britain-China Centre the Court of Appeal reviews the circumstances in which an industrial tribunal may draw an inference of racial discrimination. The Court reaffirms that it is for the applicant to prove his or her case on the balance of probabilities. However, if there is no direct evidence of discrimination, the outcome will depend on what may be inferred from the primary findings of fact.
