Equal pay: "Stable employment relationship" broader than contractual terms

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust v Fox and others sub nom Potter and others v North Cumbria Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and others (No.2) [2010] IRLR 804 CA, the Court of Appeal held that those parts of the claimants' equal pay claims that pre-dated significant changes to contractual terms were not out of time. Irrespective of the changes to contractual terms that had occurred, it was plain that there had been a "stable employment relationship" throughout for the purposes of s.2ZA of the Equal Pay Act 1970.
