An employee was not barred from bringing a racial harassment claim despite the fact that there was a high level of racial and sexual banter in the workplace, in which the employee had allegedly been involved. The EAT found that the comment which the employee had heard had not been spoken in jest and the employee had suffered discriminatory treatment which amounted to harassment. It was noted that a single incident is sufficient to amount to harassment under the Race Relations Act. Queenscourt Ltd v Nyateka
