    British Railways Board v Paul [1988] IRLR 20 EAT (0 other reports)

In British Railways Board v Paul (25.9.87) EOR21C, the EAT holds that the wording of s.2(4) of the Equal Pay Act, which has been generally understood to preclude complaints unless the applicant has been employed in the employment within the preceding six months, does not apply to complaints by former employees and only applies where the case has been referred to an industrial tribunal by the Secretary of State.
