Employee awarded 15 years back-pay

11th April, 2018

Jan Chillery, Insolvency Partner comments on the recent case of Mr A M Coletta v Bath Hill Court – Bournemouth Property Management Ltd UKEAT 0200 17 RN

To read the Transcript of Proceedings in full please click here

“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.”
