    In Pointon v The University of Sussex [1979] IRLR 119 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the appellant's claim under the Equal Pay Act could not be sustained because there was no term in her contract of employment that was less favourable than the equivalent term in the contract of the man with whom she was comparing herself.
