A Mauritian chef who claimed he was discriminated against by a Dublin restaurateur has lost his equality claim.

Kingsley Auguste, the former head chef at Dillingers in Dublin, accused the restaurant’s management team of treating non-Irish staff poorly and favouring their own people.

However, John Farrell, the restaurateur, denied these claims. The Workplace Relations Commission rejected most of Auguste’s complaints due to lack of evidence or delay in reporting.

Nonetheless, the tribunal did order the restaurant to pay Auguste nearly €900 for its failure to pay him a premium rate for Sunday work.

The tribunal heard contrasting accounts of the restaurant’s management and a Christmas Eve dispute in 2021 that ultimately led to Auguste’s resignation.

Despite Auguste’s claims, the adjudicating officer concluded that the alleged unfriendliness of the management was not related to his Mauritian background.
