Seniority-based structure discriminated

This report relates to 1 case(s)

A Birmingham employment tribunal (Chair: A B Rees) in Crossley v ACAS finds that a service-based pay structure which indirectly discriminated against women could not be objectively justified and upholds a claim of equal pay from a woman who, because of her shorter service, was paid substantially less than her male comparators employed on like work.

Mrs Crossley, who has been employed by the arbitration service, ACAS, on grade 8 since 1995, claimed equal pay with that of two male grade 8 comparators, who were paid between £3,000 and £4,000 per annum more than her.
