    O'Connor v Perry Group plc [1997] IT/10392/94 (0 other reports)

Awarding equal pay, a Bury St Edmunds industrial tribunal (Chair: J Drysdale) in O'Connor v the Perry Group plc rejects an employer's claim that an £8,000 difference in pay between a female group personnel and training manager and a male group finance and insurance sales manager employed on work of equal value was due to market forces.

Lynn O'Connor was employed by the Perry Group, a nationwide car dealership, as a group personnel training officer at the group's Hertford head office.
