    Knight v West Ferry Printers [1998] ET/3200977/98 (0 other reports)

Upholding an equal pay claim, a Stratford employment tribunal (Chair: V K Gay) in Knight v West Ferry Printers, rejects the employer's defence that the reason for the pay disparity between the applicant and her comparator who was employed on like work was because it had determined to pay the applicant a market rate.

From the middle of 1991, Mrs Knight was employed as a bought ledger clerk in West Ferry Printers' finance department, working alongside a Mr Harman, the only other bought ledger clerk employed at that time.
