“This case highlights an important aspect of the Statute of Limitations which affects a wider field than employment claims. An employee was held to be entitled to recover 15 years of back-pay to bring him up to National Minimum Wage.
Where a claim is brought under a statute that prescribes a period of limitation, the Limitation Act 1980 s.39 provides that the limitations that would otherwise apply pursuant to that Act (including the six-year limitation under s.9) would not do so. This legal point applies generally.”
