In Cadman v Health and Safety Executive Case C-1705 ECJ, the European Court of Justice held that it is not necessary for an employer to justify use of length of service as a criterion for determining the pay of workers doing work of equal value unless a worker provides evidence that raises serious doubts as to its appropriateness as a basis for determining pay.

Where length of service as a criterion for determining pay leads to indirect discrimination, it does not require specific justification by an employer, unless a claimant provides evidence that raises serious doubts about the efficacy of the criterion, holds the European Court of Justice in Cadman v Health and Safety Executive (3 October 2006).
