Collins v Wilkin Chapman [1994] EAT/945/93

Reports relating to this case:

  • Comparator must be of opposite sex

    1 March 1995

    The principle of equal pay under Article 119 of the EC Treaty only applies where the comparator is in fact of the opposite sex, the EAT holds in Collins v Wilkin Chapman, overruling the decision of an industrial tribunal that a claim could be brought where the comparator is perceived to be of the opposite sex, but is the same sex biologically.
