  • Equal pay: The use of a length-of-service criterion was justified for a period of five years only

However, the EAT had set the threshold for establishing the requisite "serious doubts" about the criterion too high. To challenge the particular use of such a criterion, "the employee only has to show that there is evidence from which, if established at trial, it can properly be found that the general rule" that such a criterion is appropriate "does not apply".
