  • I also was employed by BCC as a home-carer for 18 yrs from 1985 to 2003.i retired through ill health in the Nov 03.
    When the equal pay dispute started about i think 2 or 3 yrs ago i got in touch with a lawyer who was something to do with the B/ham mail also i was told many others did too.I payed him £100 for him to see if i had a claim only to be told that it was to late because of the 6mth ruling.
    I am pleased that now that as changed for the other women like me who worked hard in the community. But i am also angry that i will miss out on there claim for compensation ,or do you think i still am entitled.

  • Sumption's dissenting judgment is much more persuasive than the majority.

  • I to worked for BCC from 1981 to 2004 as a care assistant and senior care in residential care, and when I but forward my claim they said because I had left my job more than six months I was not entitled to any compensation. What are my chances of submitting a fresh claim and succeeding.

  • My wife worked for BCC between 2001 and June 2006, she was aware it was going to court regarding the low pay claims but couldn't claim because of the six month ruling. Surely the six year deadline should date back to when these brave women began the court action? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
