Reports relating to this case:
Part-time workers: Less favourable treatment does not have to be solely on grounds of part-time status
- 27 July 2009
In Carl v University of Sheffield  IRLR 616 EAT, the EAT held that a part-time worker complaining of less favourable treatment does not have to show that the treatment was solely on the ground of his or her part-time status. The EAT also held that the comparison must be with an actual, not a hypothetical, comparator.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that the claimant's part-time status does not have to be the sole reason for the less favourable treatment in order for him or her to succeed in a claim under the Part-time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000/1551).
