Reports relating to this case:

  • Liability for racist abuse

    1 March 1995

    In Pereira v The Post Office, a Southampton industrial tribunal rules that the Post Office, which had properly followed "full procedures", was not liable for the racial abuse suffered by an employee from a fellow employee. However, in Cooley v BRS Ltd, a Reading industrial tribunal rules that BRS had failed to properly implement its harassment policy and was liable for the racial abuse of one employee by another.
