Race discrimination: "Married off in India" remark constituted harassment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Richmond Pharmacology Ltd v Dhaliwal [2009] IRLR 336 EAT, the EAT held that the employment tribunal was entitled to find that it was reasonable for a female employee of Indian ethnic origin to be offended by what she perceived to be a stereotypical reference to the possibility of her being "married off in India". This violated her dignity and amounted to unlawful racial harassment.
