Fair Employment Act: Comparing like with like

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Croft Inns Ltd v Smyth 1[1996] IRLR 84, the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland upholds the Fair Employment Tribunal's decision that an employer unlawfully discriminated against a Roman Catholic, who worked in a bar in a "loyalist" area which was patronised by Protestants, on the grounds of religious belief by constructively dismissing him. A Protestant barman working in that bar would not have been threatened, as he had been, because of his religious belief.
