Woman wins race discrimination case against Leicester City Council

City Hall, home of the council, on Charles Street, in Leicester city centre

A woman who claimed she was discriminated against because of her race while working for Leicester City Council has won her case. An employment tribunal panel concluded the woman's treatment had "no other credible explanation" - however the council said it was 'disappointed' by the verdict and intended to appeal.

The tribunal heard that the woman, a qualified and experienced social worker responsible for a team in the council's adult social care department, was made the subject of a disciplinary investigation in January 2021 after complaints were made against her. A report by the panel stated that she described herself as being a British national of Indian origin.
