Discriminatory job evaluation schemes

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Rummler v Dato-Druck (1.7.86) EOR11B, the European Court of Justice rules that the EEC Equal Pay Directive does not preclude the use in job evaluation schemes of factors such as physical effort which favour one sex, provided the system does not discriminate overall on grounds of sex. The European Court goes on to hold that if a job classification system is not to be discriminatory overall, criteria should be used which can measure particular aptitude on the part of employees of both sexes.
