Employment Discrimination. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the defendant company's appeal against the Employment Appeal Tribunal's decision that the Employment Tribunal had made an error of law in its analysis of where the burden of proof lay in the claimant's claim for racial discrimination, held that the Employment Tribunal had failed to ask itself whether the claimant had established a prima face claim for racial discrimination, which would then have shifted the burden onto the defendant to provide an explanation.
