Employment - Employment tribunal - Complaint - Time limit - Complaint of sexual discrimination - Complaint out of time - Assessment of whether just and equitable to extend time - Date from which assessment to be made - Sex Discrimination Act 1975, s 76.
The date for assessment of whether it was just and equitable to extend time, in a complaint of sex discrimination which was out of time, was the date when the proceedings were instituted, albeit that at that date an employment tribunal would have a wide discretion under the just and equitable principle to take into account the many factors which it was allowed to.
