Eaton Ltd v J Nuttall [1977] IRLR 71 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Equal pay: Evaluation study should be capable of impartial application

    9 March 1977

    Although to date the EAT has not dealt with many cases under the job evaluation provisions of s.1(2)(b) and s.1(5) of the Equal Pay Act, and thus there is little guidance on the issues involved, the recent case of Eaton Ltd v Nuttall throws some useful light on this area.
