Employment - Discrimination against a woman - Limitation of action - Statute - Applicant filing complaint of sex discrimination after expiration of limitation period - Tribunal finding that it was not reasonably practicable for applicant to have lodged her application before expiration of limitation period and permitting her to proceed with complaint - Whether tribunal applying appropriate test - Whether tribunal misdirecting itself in law - s 76(5).
An appeal against the decision of an employment tribunal to allow an applicant's complaint of unfair dismissal, unlawful deduction of wages-breach of contract, and sex discrimination to proceed out of time was allowed because the tribunal had misdirected itself in law in failing to apply the appropriate test in relation to the limitation period for complaints of sex discrimination.
