Sex discrimination: Part-timer refused leave to resuscitate claim

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Setiya v East Yorkshire Health Authority, the EAT refuses to allow an employee an extension of time to appeal against a decision of an industrial tribunal in 1992 that he could not bring an unfair dismissal complaint because he worked less than eight hours per week. The EAT President says that considerations of finality and certainty preclude the employee from reviving his claim in light of last year's House of Lords ruling that the hours per week qualification contravened EC law.
