This report relates to 1 case(s)

In R v Secretary of State for Trade & Industry, ex parte Trades Union Congress 20.7.00 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal dismisses an appeal against the Divisional Court's decision [2000] IRLR 565 not to declare inoperative, until the ECJ answers the question that the Divisional Court referred to it, the limitation of the right to parental leave in Great Britain to parents of children born on or after 15 December 1999. The Divisional Court properly applied the relevant guidance and properly exercised the discretion that that guidance gave it.
