Crofton v Yeboah: EAT 16 May 2001

After a very long hearing, the appellant had been found guilty of race discrimination in his making of allegations about the behaviour of the respondent in failing to investigate corruption within Hackney London Borough Council.
Held: The first instance tribunal had failed to take account of evidence offered by the appellant to a degree which could only be described as perverse, and the decisions could not stand. The case was remitted to the Employment Tribunal for rehearing, with the expressed hope that a settlement could be reached. The difficulty in establishing perversity on the part of an Employment Tribunal was re-emphasised; an overwhelming case must be established.
