The Claimant brought a claim against his employer, a restaurant in Birmingham's Chinese Quarter, after he had his hours reduced by a new manager.
The Claimant claimed that when the new manager was appointed his hours were reduced from 25 hours a week first to 15, then to 10, then to six, then eventually to nothing whilst Chinese employees were given an increasing number of shifts. The Tribunal found that this was discrimination because of his race and awarded him just over £5,000 in compensation.
