    Ackroyd v (1) Abbey National plc and (2) Rollinson [1998] ET/1805694/97 (0 other reports)

Abbey National discriminated on racial grounds by applying far higher standards to an Afro-Caribbean applicant than it would have to a white job applicant and rejecting her application for employment, holds a Leeds employment tribunal (Chair: C T Grazin) in Ackroyd v (1) Abbey National plc and (2) Rollinson.

Ms Ackroyd, who is of Afro-Caribbean origin, applied for a position of tele-service customer advisor at Abbey National's new tele-service call centre in Bradford.
