Glasgow guilty of race discrimination

A Glasgow Council social work manager has been awarded £49,000
after an employment tribunal ruled that he had been the victim of
racial discrimination.

Clarence Bvunzai, 54, from Zimbabwe, argued that he had been passed
over for the job of manager of the council’s Cheviot House
residential home in Craigend in August 2000 in favour of a white
candidate who was less well qualified.

The tribunal said there was a 75 per cent chance he would have got
the job if there had been no discrimination. Bvunzai still works
for the council in a learning difficulties unit.

The council said it was considering appealing the decision.
