Time limits and omissions to act

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Swithland Motors plc v Clarke and others (8 October 1993) EOR55C, the EAT rules that an unlawful act of discrimination by omitting to offer employment cannot be committed until the alleged discriminator is in a position to offer such employment. In this case, that meant that time began to run not when prospective purchasers decided against employing the respondent employees but from the later date on which the purchase was completed.
