    In Bromley and others v H & J Quick Ltd (28.7.87) EOR16A, a majority of the EAT holds that s.1(5) of the Equal Pay Act 1970 does not require a job evaluation scheme to be "analytical" and that whether a job evaluation relied upon by an employer for the purpose of defeating an equal value claim was discriminatory is a matter for determination by the industrial tribunal.
