Equal pay: Incremental credit based on actual time worked was indirectly discriminatory

This report relates to 1 case(s)

To place jobsharers, when they convert to full-time work, on an incremental scale at a level lower than that of their full-time colleagues with the same length of service who have always worked full time gives rise to indirect discrimination in pay if far more women than men jobshare, unless the difference in treatment between the two categories of full-time worker can be justified, holds the European Court of Justice in Hill and Stapleton v Revenue Commissioners and Department of Finance [1998] IRLR 466. And an employer cannot justify discrimination arising from a jobsharing scheme solely on the ground that avoidance of such discrimination would involve increased costs.
