Race relations - Discrimination - Employment - Employment tribunal finding complaints of racial discrimination made out - Appeal tribunal finding that tribunal's findings perverse - Whether appeal tribunal in error.
In the instant case, the EAT had reached the unjustified conclusion that specific decisions on fact, and therefore ultimate decisions on liability, had been perverse. The employment tribunal's earlier conclusion that the respondent had discriminated against the complainant on racial grounds had been a permissible option for the tribunal on the evidence before it. The EAT's decision would, accordingly, be set aside and the decision of the employment tribunal restored.
