Bowden v Ministry of Justice and another

Employment – Part-time workers. The appellant, a retired part-time legal chair of the former Residential Property Tribunal Service, brought a claim, alleging that he should have received a judicial pension and other improvements to his employment terms and conditions. He appealed against the employment tribunal's dismissal of his claim as being out of time. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing his appeal, held, among other things, that the employment judge had relied impermissibly on a previous authority and had not applied the correct principles of law when deciding whether it had been just and equitable to consider the claimant's claim out of time. The case was remitted for fresh consideration.
