    Crossley v ACAS [2000] ET/1304744/98 (1 other report)

    • Seniority-based structure discriminated

      1 June 2000

      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.

ACAS has reached an agreement with the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) to settle an equal pay claim which was decided, in the applicants' favour, in 1999.
