    The Bentley Engineering Co Ltd v D Crown and SM Miller [1976] IRLR 146 HC (0 other reports)

The time bar on redundancy payment claims filed before an Industrial Tribunal more than six months after the effective date of dismissal has up until now been viewed as applying both to claims that the employee was entitled to a payment and to claims that the payment was wrongly calculated. In an important High Court case, however, Mr Justice Phillips has ruled that the time bar does not relate to disputes over the amount of the payment if the employer has accepted, within the six month period, that the employee is entitled to some redundancy payment.
