    Grewal v Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council EAT/520/92 (0 other reports)

The EAT holds in Grewal v Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council that an industrial tribunal's decision that there had been no racial discrimination was perverse, where the facts showed that the complainant had suffered less favourable treatment for which the employer had given no credible explanation. The EAT says that in such circumstances, tribunals should not shrink from drawing the inference of unlawful discrimination where appropriate.
