Gibson and others v Sheffield City Council  IRLR 311 CA (1 other report)
equal pay | defence | genuine material factor
The Court of Appeal has held that an employment tribunal was wrong to find that a pay differential between male street cleaners and female carers, which had been caused by a productivity bonus given to the cleaners that was not appropriate for the carers due to the nature of the work, was not tainted by sex.
Care workers brought a claim for equal pay comparing themselves to street cleaners.
