Equal pay: Use of comparator employed by different education authority was valid

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The use by an applicant claiming equal pay of a comparator employed by a different education authority from that which employed her was valid, holds the EAT in South Ayrshire Council v Morton 21.9.00 EAT(S) 1267/99. Although the two education authorities were not "associated employers" as required by provisions of the Equal Pay Act 1970, those provisions fell to be disapplied to the extent they were incompatible with Article 141 of the EC Treaty.
