EAT decision re comparators in equal pay claims - Reading BC v James [EAT] 07.06.18 (Unreported)

Tue, 12 Jun 2018

Where male comparators in equal pay claims had been promoted, or left their roles, part way through the period for which the claimants sought equal pay, that could not defeat the claims. The claimants were not required to find another comparator for the balance of the period, as they already had a statutorily implied contractual right to higher pay by the time the comparators' roles changed.
