Knowledge of Discrimination

30 March 2010 #Employment

In Taylor v XLN Telecom, it was confirmed that in assessing an award for injury to feelings there is no requirement for the employee to prove he had knowledge of the act of discrimination. 

The employee in this case was entitled to claim injury to feelings regardless of whether he knew about the employer`s discriminatory motive to dismiss him.
