    Southampton and South-West Hampshire Area Health Authority v Marshall (No.2) [1989] IRLR 459 EAT (0 other reports)

In Southampton and South-West Hampshire Area Health Authority v Marshall (No 2) (18 September 1989) EOR28A, the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal is not entitled to include a sum representing interest as part of an award of compensation for unlawful sex discrimination. Although not directly an issue on appeal, on the EAT's reasoning, the industrial tribunal in this case was also wrong to hold that it was entitled under EEC law to award compensation in excess of the maximum limit under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.
