    R v Secretary of State for Employment ex parte Equal Opportunities Commission 6 November 1992 CA (0 other reports)

In R v Secretary of State for Employment ex parte Equal Opportunities Commission (6 November 1992) EOR47C, the Court of Appeal, by a majority decision, holds that the EOC was not entitled to challenge by way of judicial review the statutory qualifying thresholds in respect of unfair dismissal and redundancy payments on grounds that the longer qualifying periods for part-time workers indirectly discriminate against women contrary to EEC law.
