    Greenwich London Borough v Dell EAT/1166/94 (0 other reports)

In London Borough of Greenwich v Dell 26.7.95 EAT 1166/94 the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that a caretaker employed by a local authority to work on its inner city housing estates was unfairly dismissed because of his membership of the British National Party. However, the EAT allows the employer's appeal against the tribunal's order that the employee be re-engaged in a post which would not bring him into contact with ethnic minorities. Such an order was not reasonably practicable, particularly as the local authority was an equal opportunities employer.
