    Allonby v Accrington and Rossendale College [2000] EAT (0 other reports)

A man employed by a college was not employed in the "same employment", within the meaning of the Equal Pay Act 1970, as a woman who was employed by a company which supplied her under a contract made with the college, holds the EAT in Allonby v Accrington & Rossendale College and others 29.3.00 EAT 1300/ 97 and 1080/98. The woman's claim for equal pay with the man failed for want of a comparator employed by the same or an associated employer, and the need for such a comparator does not offend Community law.
