Employment – Discrimination. The employees had been Nigerian women working in the United Kingdom pursuant to migrant domestic worker visas. They had commenced various employment claims against their employers. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the employers' treatment had not been on the grounds of the employees' nationality, therefore they had not suffered direct racial discrimination. The court upheld a finding of victimisation in one claim and remitted the matter for a decision on remedy.
