Employment Appeal Tribunal
Local authority's appeal against finding of unlawful discrimination contrary to s.1(1)(a)&(b) Race Relations Act 1976 where complainant was refused two higher posts in the library service where he worked & a discussion at which it had been suggested because he was an orthodox Jew, he would not be able to work on a Saturday.
HELD: Although words of discouragement could amount to discrimination, the tribunal had failed to identify the actual words used so there was no evidence complainant was being treated less favourably than other applicants or that he suffered any detriment under s.4(2)(c). Appeal allowed.
