    Mooyart v Sakura Finance International Ltd [1997] IT/23565/95 (0 other reports)

A Japanese bank's requirement that a non-Japanese executive director report to a lower-ranking Japanese associate director and the associate director's insistence that the executive director provide him with written reports whereas he was satisfied with oral reports from his Japanese colleagues was unlawful race discrimination, rules a Bury St Edmunds industrial tribunal (Chair: B G Mitchell) in Mooyart v Sakura Finance International Ltd. It finds it "reprehensible" that no attention was paid by the employer to the race Code of Practice and recommends that the company "urgently seek advice", and take action, on equal opportunities matters.
