    British Gas plc v Sharma [1991] IRLR 101 EAT (0 other reports)

In British Gas plc v Sharma (18 July 1990) EOR36D, the EAT holds that a complaint must fail if the tribunal finds itself in a state of doubt either because the evidence of the employer has thrown doubt upon the primary facts upon which the appellant's case rests or because the employer has adduced an explanation upon those primary facts which throws doubt upon the true and proper inferences to be drawn. The EAT also limits the scope of action recommendations as a remedy for unlawful discrimination.
