In Lawson v (1) South Tees District Health Authority and (2) The Secretary of State for Health a London South employment tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) rules that a speech therapist was employed on work of equal value to that of a pharmacist, and makes detailed proposals for reforming the equal value procedure. These proposals include a preliminary hearing for equal value cases and a requirement for an independent expert to draw up job descriptions of both the applicant's and comparator's jobs.
