EAT gives landmark judgement on shared parental pay – HR Inform

This month, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has handed down its judgement on a direct sex discrimination case involving shared parental pay.

Shared parental pay was not direct sex discrimination  

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has recently decided that paying women on maternity leave more than men on shared parental leave was not direct sex discrimination.

The ruling was based on the determination that a woman who has given birth is entitled to special treatment in connection with the childbirth that cannot be compared to a man on shared parental leave.
