Time extended for bringing transsexual complaint

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Mills and Crown Prosecution Service v Marshall [1998] IRLR 494 EAT, the EAT has upheld an industrial tribunal finding that it was just and equitable to extend time for bringing a complaint of unlawful sex discrimination by a transsexual who was unaware of her right to bring a claim in time, because she and her lawyers were reasonably unaware of her rights under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 until after the decision of the European Court of Justice in P v S, which clarified the ambit of the EC Equal Treatment Directive.
