Equal pay: No need to show that comparator might be located at claimant's workplace to be "in the same employment"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In North and others v Dumfries and Galloway Council [2013] IRLR 737 SC, the Supreme Court held that, where a claimant and her comparator are employed at different establishments, the correct hypothetical question is whether or not, in the event (however unlikely) of the comparator being transferred to do his present job at the claimant's workplace, he would continue to enjoy the same or broadly similar terms and conditions as he did before.
