Part- and full-time firefighters on the same contracts, but not the same work

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Matthews and others v Kent and Medway Towns Fire Authority and others (2 July 2004), the Court of Appeal holds that retained firefighters are employed on the same type of contract as full-time firefighters, as required by reg. 2(4) of the Part-time Workers Regulations, but the retained firefighters claim is unsuccessful as the work they do is found not to be "the same or broadly similar" to their full-time comparators.
