    Bains v Amber Leisure Ltd [1994] IT/09972/94 (0 other reports)

It is a foreseeable consequence of discriminatory treatment that an employee will become upset and demotivated, holds a Birmingham industrial tribunal (Chair: A J McCarry) in Bains v Amber Leisure Ltd, finding that the dismissal of an ethnic minority employee for redundancy was unlawful discrimination even though he had requested it. His request had arisen through the company's failure to deal with his legitimate pay grievance, which itself had arisen because of the stereotypical and discriminatory view that "persons of ethnic minorities are likely to be somewhat inferior to white people".
