  • No right to equal pay for time off

    Date:
    1 November 1996

    In Manor Bakeries Ltd v Nazir (1 August 1996) EOR70B, the EAT rejects a part-time worker's equal pay claim under EC law in respect of paid time off to attend a trade union conference as a delegate. According to the EAT, Article 119 of the EC Treaty confers a right to equal pay for equal work, and attendance at a union conference is not "work".
