The Case

The employee's appeal against the employment tribunal's dismissal of her complaint of racial discrimination, comprising of an overaching complaint encompassing two sets of alleged discriminatory treatment, was dismissed as the tribunal had looked at each and every matter of complaint, had drawn together those matters and had sought to identify for themselves whether those matters had or had not constituted a single continuing series of acts. There was nothing in the way in which the tribunal had approached the matter or in the way it had expressed itself that indicated that it had erred in law in coming to its conclusion.
