North and others v Dumfries and Galloway Council  IRLR 737 SC
Reports relating to this case:
Equal pay: No need to show that comparator might be located at claimant's workplace to be "in the same employment"
- 18 November 2013
In North and others v Dumfries and Galloway Council  IRLR 737 SC, the Supreme Court held that, where a claimant and her comparator are employed at different establishments, the correct hypothetical question is whether or not, in the event (however unlikely) of the comparator being transferred to do his present job at the claimant's workplace, he would continue to enjoy the same or broadly similar terms and conditions as he did before.
- 28 June 2013
The Supreme Court has held that the fact that the work of the claimants' chosen comparators has to be carried on in a different place of work out of necessity is no barrier to bringing an equal pay claim.
