Parental leave sex discrimination case - Capita Customer Management Ltd v Ali [EAT] 11.04.18 (Unreported)


Thu, 12 Apr 2018

Paying a higher rate of maternity pay to a female employee than would be given to an employee of either sex upon taking shared parental leave did not amount to direct sex discrimination. The purpose of shared parental leave was different to that of maternity leave and was given on the same terms for both men and women. Therefore, a father taking shared parental leave was not in a comparable situation to that of a mother taking maternity leave.
