    Tennant Textile Colours Ltd v Todd [1989] IRLR 3 NICA (0 other reports)

In Tennant Textile Colours Ltd v Todd (5.7.88) EOR23A, the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal rules that the burden of proving work of equal value is always on the applicant and that that burden is unaltered by the independent expert's report. Even after the report has been admitted in evidence, neither the independent expert's findings of fact nor the expert's conclusions are binding upon the industrial tribunal and a tribunal is not limited to rejecting the expert's conclusions only where it finds that they are perverse.
