Zero Tolerance to Racism

Halfords have had to sack one employee and the other resigned before getting the chop, after the two of them were caught saying racist comments onto a customer’s phone.

“A person discriminates against another in any circumstances relevant for the purposes of any provision of this Act if—

(a)on racial grounds he treats that other less favourably than he treats or would treat other persons;”
