Can an employer treat part-time workers less favourably than it treats full-time workers?
Terms and conditions of employment cannot differ between full- and part-time workers, unless the reason for the difference is unrelated to the
full- or part-time status of the worker. Where part-time workers do not
enjoy pro rata pay or benefits, this must be justified under the Part-time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000/1551). Particular care must be exercised in
relation to part-timers if the majority of them are women to ensure that there
is no indirect discrimination.
