    Date:

    In Allonby v Accrington & Rossendale College and others [2004] IRLR 224 ECJ, the European Court of Justice held that a female lecturer employed via an agency could not claim equal pay in relation to a male lecturer employed directly by the college. The employment agency and the college could not be construed as being the same employer, and the differences in equal pay could not be attributed to a single source, so there was no single body responsible for the inequality.
