In Preston and others v Wolverhampton Healthcare NHS Trust and others and Fletcher and others v Midland Bank plc, the EAT holds that part-time employees' claims for unlawful exclusion from occupational pension schemes were only in time if begun within six months of the end of the contract of employment allegedly breached by denial of access to the relevant scheme.
In Preston and others v Wolverhampton Healthcare NHS Trust and others (24 June 1996) EOR69C, the EAT rules that claims by part-time workers seeking retrospective access to occupational pension schemes are subject to the six-month time limit on presenting complaints and the two-year limit on arrears of damages.
