    Hayward v Cammell Laird Shipbuilders Ltd [1986] IRLR 287 EAT (0 other reports)

In Hayward v Cammell Laird Shipbuilders Ltd (19.5.86) EOR9C, the EAT rules that an employer does not have to pay a woman employed on work of equal value the same basic wage as her male comparators if, considered as a whole, her terms and conditions are not less favourable. To determine the size of the woman's award (if any), the tribunal must compare her "total employment package" with that of her comparators.
