In the Capper Pass v Lawton, the EAT hold that in determining whether a woman and a man are employed on broadly similar work, Industrial Tribunals should disregard "trivial differences or differences not likely in the real world to be reflected in terms and conditions of employment". And in Dugdale and others v Kraft Foods Ltd, the EAT hold that the time that the work is performed should also be disregarded when considering whether jobs constitute like work within the s.1(4) definition.
