The six-month time limit for bringing claims under the Equal Pay Act 1970, and the two-year limitation on the retrospective recovery of compensation under that Act, are compatible with the Community law right of part-time workers not to suffer indirect sex discrimination in relation to the grant of access to an occupational pension scheme, holds the Court of Appeal in Preston and others v Wolverhampton Healthcare Trust and another and Fletcher and others v Midland Bank plc.
In Preston and others v Wolverhampton Healthcare NHS Trust and others (13 February 1997) EOR72B, the Court of Appeal rules that claims by part-time workers seeking retrospective access to occupational pension schemes are subject to the six-month time limit on presenting complaints and the two-year limit on arrears of damages.
