Many thanks for your patience. There is nothing specific in law which states that the decision from 10 years ago cannot be used. However, it is unlikely to be considered fair and reasonable because decisions like that should only last for a limited period of time, after which they are disregarded. For example, if someone was issued with a warning by the employer, it would last for a set period of time, such as 6 months or a year. Once that period has expired, the warning is no longer live and should be disregarded in any future decisions. This is the same position here – being 10 years old, and considering nothing similar has happened since, it would be too historic to use in a current decision and should be disregarded
