Salter v Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

Employment Appeal Tribunal – Discrimination. The employee claimed to have been the victim of racial discrimination, and had subsequently been dismissed by reason of long health related absence. An employment tribunal found that she had suffered discrimination on the grounds of race, and had been unfairly dismissed, but that the two issues were not related. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT), dismissing the employee's appeal, held that the claim did not break the high threshold of a perversity challenge. The EAT further dismissed an appeal for compensation due to ill health caused by discrimination, and appeals as to the levels of compensation awarded for injury to feelings and unfair dismissal.
