    Burton and Rhule v De Vere Hotels Ltd [1995] IT/6977/95 (0 other reports)

Two hotel waitresses who suffered racial abuse from Bernard Manning, the guest speaker at a local Round Table dinner, and from some of the diners, were not discriminated against on grounds of race, rules a Nottingham industrial tribunal (Chair: D Sneath) in Burton and Ruhle v De Vere Hotels Ltd. Although both applicants suffered a detriment within the meaning of the Race Relations Act, it was not the respondent which subjected them to it, said the tribunal.
