    Worsfold v (1) Southampton District Health Authority and (2) Secretary of State for Health [1998] IT/18296/87 (0 other reports)

A female speech therapist whose job was scored 55 compared with 56.5 for her male comparator's job by an independent expert, as adjusted, was employed on work of equal value because there was no "overall measurable and significant differences" in job demands, holds a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) in Worsfold v (1) Southampton District Health Authority and (2) Secretary of State for Health.

Sarah Worsfold, a senior speech therapist, is one of a number of test-case applicants in the speech therapist equal pay claims.
