Reports relating to this case:

  • ACAS staff win compensation for years of unequal pay

    1 April 2002

    ACAS has reached an agreement with the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) to settle an equal pay claim which was decided, in the applicants' favour, in 1999.

  • Seniority-based structure discriminated

    1 June 2000

    A Birmingham employment tribunal (Chair: A B Rees) in Crossley v ACAS finds that a service-based pay structure which indirectly discriminated against women could not be objectively justified and upholds a claim of equal pay from a woman who, because of her shorter service, was paid substantially less than her male comparators employed on like work.
