Time limit applies to employment not job

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In National Power plc v Young the Court of Appeal has ruled that the time limit in s. 2(4) of the Equal Pay Act 1970, which provides that an equal pay claim cannot be brought if the applicant has not been "employed in the employment" to which the claim relates within the six months preceding the date of the complaint, does not relate to the particular job on which the woman bases her claim to an equality clause.
