    • Yeboah v Crofton

      1 September 2002

      In Yeboah v Crofton [2002] IRLR 634 CA, the Court of Appeal held that an employee can be made personally liable for acts of unlawful discrimination committed by him or her in the course of his or her employment against a fellow employee, even though the employer is held not to be legally liable for its conduct because it took reasonably practicable steps to prevent its employee from doing the act in question.

In Crofton v Yeboah (31 May 2002), the Court of Appeal upholds a finding that a local government official was personally liable under the Race Relations Act for discrimination against a fellow employee.
