Mills and Crown Prosecution Service v Marshall [1998] IRLR 494 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Sex discrimination: Just and equitable to consider transsexual's out-of-time complaint

    Date:
    15 July 1998

    In Mills and Crown Prosecution Service v Marshall, the EAT holds that it was just and equitable to extend the time for presenting a transsexual's complaint of unlawful sex discrimination where the complainant was reasonably unaware of the extent of her applicable rights until after the European Court of Justice's ruling in P v S and Cornwall County Council.

  • Time extended for bringing transsexual complaint

    Date:
    1 June 1998

    In Mills and Crown Prosecution Service v Marshall the EAT has upheld an industrial tribunal finding that it was just and equitable to extend time for bringing a complaint of unlawful sex discrimination by a transsexual who was unaware of her right to bring a claim in time, because she and her lawyers were reasonably unaware of her rights under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 until after the decision of the European Court of Justice in P v S, which clarified the ambit of the EC Equal Treatment Directive.
