Parties must be given opportunity

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Wood v William Ball Ltd the EAT has ruled that an employment tribunal cannot determine that two jobs are not of equal value without giving the parties an opportunity to adduce their own evidence.

The Equal Pay Act 1970 was amended in 1996 so as to allow employment tribunals to determine the question of whether work is of equal value themselves without referring the matter to an independent expert.
