Expert's report rejected

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Thompson v John Blackburn Ltd a Leeds industrial tribunal (Chair: J Prophet) refuses to admit an independent expert's report in equal value proceedings because in its view the expert failed to make clear findings of fact and take proper account of all information represented to her.

Ann Thompson, who was employed as a warehouse storekeeper by printers John Blackburn Ltd, claimed equal pay for work of equal value, comparing her work with that of a "warehouseman".
