Equal pay: Length of service as justification for unequal pay

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Wilson v Health and Safety Executive EAT/0050/08, the EAT held that the ECJ decision in Cadman does not prevent the tribunal examining the period to which a length-of-service criterion is referable. This is provided that the employee has raised "serious doubts" about the appropriateness of the criterion to meet the employer's legitimate aim of rewarding experience that delivers improved job performance.
