Kalu v Brighton & Sussex University and others

Employment – Discrimination. The employment tribunal dismissed a black doctor's race discrimination claim on the basis that a policy concerning contingency plans at a hospital during a period a possible swine flu pandemic had been sound and had nothing to do with the employee's race, ethnicity or nationality. The Employment Appeal Tribunal allowed the doctor's appeal in part on the basis that the tribunal had erred in excluding evidence without going through the requisite process of evaluating the reliance of that evidence.
