    Halloran v Corporation of London [1998] ET/14119/96 (0 other reports)

A female teacher at a girls' independent school whose basic pay was £7,000 a year less than a male teacher employed on like work at a boys' independent school, was entitled to equal pay, holds a Stratford employment tribunal (Chair: Q Barry) in Halloran v Corporation of London. It rejects the employer's defence that the pay difference was justified because of the need to pay higher salaries to attract teachers to boys' schools.
