ECJ rules on equal pay comparators

In Case-320/00 Lawrence and others v Regent Office Care Ltd and others, the ECJ ruled on 17 September 2002 that a situation in which differences identified in the pay conditions of workers of a different sex performing equal work or work of equal value cannot be attributed to a single source, does not fall within the scope of Article 141 of the EC Treaty, which lays down the principle of equal pay.
