McNeil & Others –v- Commissioners for HM Revenue & Customs

19th March 2019

The Claimants are women in HMRC’s grades 6 and 7.  The Employment Tribunal dismissed equal pay claims brought by them based on comparison with longer-serving, higher-paid male colleagues in the same grades.  It held that the statistical evidence on which they relied failed to establish that the use of a length of service criterion put female employees in the relevant grades at a particular disadvantage within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010.  The Employment Appeal Tribunal (Simler P) dismissed their appeal. The Claimants appeal against that order.
