    McManus and others v Daylay Foods Ltd EAT/82/95 (0 other reports)

In McManus and others v Daylay Foods Ltd, the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal has no jurisdiction to hear three part-timers' claims for redundancy pay brought almost six months after the House of Lords' decision in R v Secretary of State for Employment ex parte Equal Opportunities Commission [1994] IRLR 176 in March 1994, arising from their dismissals 16 years earlier. Their claims were brought not under Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome but under the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978, and that Act's six-month time limit for redundancy pay claims applied because it was not incompatible with Community law.
