Court of Appeal judgment on establishing discriminatory conduct in police force - Chief Constable of Greater Manchester v Bailey [CA] 14.06.17 (Unreported)

Authoritative material showing that discriminatory conduct or attitudes were widespread in an institution might, depending on the case, make it more likely that the alleged conduct had occurred, or that the alleged motivations were operative. There was, however, no "doctrine of transferred malice", and such material had always to be used with care. If an Employment Tribunal considered the material in question to have probative value as regards the motivation of the alleged discriminator in any particular case, it had to give specific reasons for doing so.
