The five women who took the council to court after losing their jobs in a restructuring of the housing department could now be line for substantial compensation.
Five other workers who lost their jobs in the same restructure have already accepted an out of court settlement worth a total of£30,000.
The tribunal found in favour of the five, who represented themselves, and said the council's attitude had amounted to 'direct racism'.
Islington LBC leader Steve Hitchins pledged to open up the council's equal opportunities policies to a review by the Commission for Racial Equality.
The awards hearing is due to start on February 28.
