    24 November 2007

    In Blackford Farms Ltd v Mulqueeney EATS/0031/06, the EAT held that an employee who lodged an out-of-time claim for unlawful deductions from wages when he was within the time limit for a breach of contract claim should not have been allowed to proceed with his claim. The fact that he could have brought a breach of contract claim did not mean that he had done so.
