    In Cannon v Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (17 June 1992) EOR46B, the EAT directly applies the principles set out by the European Court of Justice in Emmott v Minister for Social Welfare EOR40A to hold that the time limit for bringing a complaint under EEC law in respect of a discriminatory redundancy payment did not begin to run until the provisions of the Employment Act 1989 removing the discriminatory treatment came into force.
