    Johnson v Chief Adjudication Officer (No.2) [1995] IRLR 157 ECJ (0 other reports)

In Johnson v Chief Adjudication Officer (No.2) (6 December 1994) EOR59A, the European Court of Justice rules that national law may limit the period over which a remedy may be claimed in arrears in respect of a directly enforceable right under EC law. The ECJ distinguishes between time limits on the right to bring a claim under Community law and a rule such as in this case which limited the period in respect of which arrears of benefit are payable to one year from the date of claim.
