Guidance on the age regulations has been published jointly by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the TUC.
This case is the continuation of very long and complex litigation by women council workers for equal pay. In Bainbridge and ors v Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) said, among other things, that claims based on job evaluation studies cannot be backdated for six years.
The so-called dispute resolution regulations have produced a flurry of cases recently. For instance, Lawrence v HM Prison Service, in which the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) said that employees who have been dismissed do not have to lodge a separate grievance, if they want to argue that the dismissal was discriminatory as well as unfair.
