Whether victimisation claim made in "bad faith" - Saad v Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust [EAT] 22.08.18 (Unreported)


Thu, 27 Sep 2018

In determining whether a victimisation claim had been made in "bad faith" for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010 s.27(3), "bad faith" had a core meaning of dishonesty. If false evidence or information had been given, or a false allegation made, the tribunal had to determine whether it had been given or made by the claimant honestly. Motivation could be part of the relevant context, but the primary question was whether the claimant had acted dishonestly.
