      1 July 1998

      In Cast v Croydon College (19 March 1998) EOR80B, the Court of Appeal has ruled that a decision by an employer may be a separate act of discrimination for time-limit purposes, whether or not it is made on the same facts as before, providing it results from a further consideration of the matter and is not merely a reference back to an earlier decision.

In Cast v Croydon College [1998] IRLR 318, the Court of Appeal holds that the act of discrimination complained of by a woman, whose employer had refused on three separate occasions to allow her to jobshare after she returned from maternity leave, extended up to the time she resigned. The employer had applied to her a discriminatory policy or regime pursuant to which decisions had been taken from time to time.
