Issues covered:

1. ADJ – 00000107 - This is the first review of an equality decision submitted since the establishment of the WRC being lodged on 8 October 2015. The case considers an interview process and the respondent’s apparently robust interview procedures won the day.

2. DEC-E2016-037 – Victimisation was the focus of this case in respect of treatment following the lodgement of a previous claim to the Equality Tribunal. The complainant was awarded €48,750 because of a delay of 4 years and 7 months in addressing the complainant’s grievance in circumstances where the respondent had explicitly stated the grievance was inextricably linked with the earlier claim.

1. ADJ-00000107
