In Specialarbejderforbundet i Danmark v Dansk Industri, acting for Royal Copenhagen A/S (31 May 1995) EOR64C, the European Court of Justice rules that a mere difference in average pay between predominantly male and predominantly female groups of pieceworkers employed on work of equal value does not establish sex discrimination with regard to pay.
The principle of equal pay for men and women under Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome and the EC "Equal Treatment" Directive applies to piece-work pay schemes, confirms the European Court of Justice in Specialarbejderforbundet i Danmark v Dansk Industri, acting for Royal Copenhagen A/S.
