Petar Starcevic won a hard fought racial and age discrimination claim against a national casino chain. The win has attracted national publicity in newspapers and radio because one of the allegations of discrimination found was being ostracised from a Christmas drinks outing, but the case is notable for much more than that, in particular:

– the Company’s director of HR was found personally to have discriminated;

– as a result the award included an award of aggravated damages;

– remedy involved complex issues of apportionment between various employee respondents;

– the calculation of the award involved complex grossing up calculations to take account of tax.
