1/ The Court of Appeal's judgment in Secretary of State for BEIS v Parry and Trustees of the William Jones's School Foundation is fascinating for a whole host of reasons, perhaps particularly a little bit of obiter thrown in at the end bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/… #ukemplaw 2/ First, unusually this was an appeal brought by a non-party to the original hearing and to the EAT appeal. All parties accepted (eventually) the CA had jurisdiction. The SoS had only appealed in shock and horror at an ultra vires ruling without being added as a party.

1/ CA judgment was handed down today in Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Local Health Board v Morgan. It'll be the go-to case for Claimants seeking a just and equitable extension of time under the Equality Act. #ukemplaw 2/ First, the Court deals with s.123(4), dismissing an argument by the Board that the date time runs from in an omission case must also be considered the date of breach.

1/ Thread: The CJEU judgment in the holiday pay case of King v Sash Windows is out and is a 'must-read' for all #ukemplaw practitioners. curia.europa.eu/juris/document… 2/ As you'll know, Mr King worked for Sash Windows for 13 years and was never paid for taking annual leave. This meant some years he was reluctant to take it. #ukemplaw
