Employment law cases

Anya v University of Oxford and another [2001] IRLR 377 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unreasonable behaviour may justify inference

    1 June 2001

    In Anya v University of Oxford the Court of Appeal has ruled that where an employer behaves unreasonably towards a black employee, it is an error of law for a tribunal to direct itself that an inference of race discrimination is not to be drawn, without more, because the employer might very well behave in a similarly unreasonable fashion to a white employee.
