Three recent cases have examined the employer's defence to an equal pay claim.
In issue 8 of LELR (see £28,500 race bias award not excessive) we reported the case of Johnson (1) where the Employment Appeal Tribunal upheld an Industrial Tribunal award of £21,000 compensation for injury to feelings, the highest award ever recorded.
The European Court of Justice confirmed in its ruling in Rotsart that TUPE Regulations automatically transfer the employment contracts of those employed in the part transferred.
