    Charles v Pembrokeshire County Council and Governors of Haverfordwest VC School [1997] IT/25695/96 (0 other reports)

A local education authority indirectly discriminated on grounds of sex by refusing to value a woman's unpaid experience in raising a family when it awarded incremental points for "relevant experience", a Carmarthen industrial tribunal (Chair: M Thomas) decides in Charles v Pembrokeshire County Council and Governors of Haverfordwest VC School.

The rules governing teachers' pay and conditions give a discretion to award incremental pay spine points for "years of experience other than employment as a teacher which the relevant body considers of value to the performance of the classroom teacher's duties." This experience can be paid or unpaid.
