Equal pay: Attendance allowance is part of single term with basic pay and bonus

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Degnan and others v Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council [2005] IRLR 615, the Court of Appeal holds that an attendance allowance paid to male comparators on work rated as equivalent to that of female employees constituted, together with their hourly rate and fixed bonuses, a single term of their contract under the "same subject matter" test in Hayward v Cammell Laird Shipbuilders (No.2) [1988] IRLR 257, for the purpose of comparison with the women's terms under the Equal Pay Act 1970.
