EAT limits retrospective claims

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Biggs v Somerset County Council (6 July 1995) EOR63B, the EAT rules that a part-time worker dismissed in 1976 was time-barred from bringing an unfair dismissal complaint in 1994 shortly after the decision of the House of Lords that the hours per week qualifying condition under UK law was contrary to European Community law. According to the EAT, the three-month time limit for presenting an unfair dismissal complaint applied to a claim relying upon Article 119 and that time limit began to run from the date of dismissal in 1976.
