Racial Discrimination Cases Surge In South

Reports of racial discrimination made to the Equality Tribunal in the south of Ireland have jumped dramatically in the past twelve months, up 100% in that period. The figures are contained in the Equality Tribunal’s annual report, and come in the aftermath of a successful case taken by an Englishman who was subjected to sustained racial abuse in his workplace and who, earlier this week, was awarded 20,000euro in compensation.
