Boyle and others v Equal Opportunities Commission  IRLR 717 ECJ (2 other reports)
In Boyle v Equal Opportunities Commission the European Court of Justice has rejected a challenge under EC law to the civil service maternity scheme based on the argument that women on maternity leave were treated less favourably than men on sick leave.
Margaret Boyle and her colleagues brought a test case challenging various aspects of the EOC's maternity scheme, which mirrors that of the Civil Service.
