This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Methilhill Bowling Club v Hunter (6 February 1995) EOR61C, the EAT rules that a part-time worker whose unfair dismissal claim was rejected on grounds that she did not have the five years' service then necessary for an employee working between eight and 16 hours per week to be able to bring a complaint, was entitled to bring a fresh complaint directly under Article 119 of the EC Treaty, relying upon the decision of the House of Lords in ex parte EOC.
