Jämställdhetsombudsmannen v Örebro Läns Landsting  IRLR 421 ECJ (2 other reports)
In Jämställdhetsombudsmannen v Orebro Läns Landsting  IRLR 421, the European Court of Justice rules that, in comparing the pay of two midwives and that of a clinical technician assumed to be doing work of equal value, no account should be taken of the fact that the midwives were paid a supplement for working inconvenient hours and that they worked fewer hours per week. The midwives' monthly basic salary should be compared with that of their comparator.
