Hill and Stapleton v Revenue Commissioners and Department of Finance [1998] IRLR 466 ECJ

Reports relating to this case:

  • Equal pay: Incremental credit based on actual time worked was indirectly discriminatory

    Date:
    1 December 1998

    To place jobsharers, when they convert to full-time work, on an incremental scale at a level lower than that of their full-time colleagues with the same length of service who have always worked full time gives rise to indirect discrimination in pay if far more women than men jobshare, unless the difference in treatment between the two categories of full-time worker can be justified, holds the European Court of Justice in Hill and Stapleton v Revenue Commissioners and Department of Finance.

  • Discrimination against former jobsharers

    Date:
    1 September 1998

    In Hill v Revenue Commissioners (17 June 1998) EOR81B, the European Court of Justice holds that rules which treat full-time workers who previously jobshared disadvantageously compared with other full-time workers, must in principle be treated as contrary to Article 119 of the EC Treaty, and that indirect sex discrimination cannot be justified on cost grounds.
