Sex discrimination: Abolition of compensation limit was retrospective

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Harvey v Institute of the Motor Industry (No.2), the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal was wrong to apply to an award of compensation under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 the limit which applied to such awards when the complainant was dismissed contrary to that Act. The award was made after the coming into force of the Regulations which removed the ceiling on awards under the Act, and those Regulations had retrospective effect.
