In Foster v South Glamorgan Health Authority (15.3.88) EOR21F, the EAT rules that if the reason a discrimination complaint has been brought outside the statutory time limit is because during the period the law appears to have been changed by a new decision, a tribunal is entitled to consider whether it is "equitable" to allow the complaint to be heard.
