Fullah v Medical Research Council and Another: EAT 10 Jun 2013

EAT Race Discrimination : Direct – Detriment – The Claimant did not specify race discrimination in his internal complaint about his manager. Applying Waters and Durrani, the context did not admit of a generous interpretation of his language. There was no protected act. There was no unfavourable treatment as the Claimant accepted the manager treated black and white employees in the same unfavourable way. There was no detriment to the Claimant as the decisions on acting up and a permanent position were made without reference to race or any protected act. The Claimant’s appeal was dismissed.
