Daphne Romney QC at Cloisters acts in the first Scottish multiple equal pay claim to reach the employment tribunal remedy stage

The remedies hearing on the second wave of the pay case representing 363 claims dating from 2001 to 2007 against North Lanarkshire Council, raised examples of women working in the social care service being paid less than men doing the same job.

The two day hearing took place in Glasgow. Ms Daphne Romney representing the claimants argued strongly for the appropriate statutory rate of interest applicable in Scotland and an award for Injury to feelings (ITF).  

The Council argued for a lower rate of interest to be applied to awards and that ITF does not apply to equal pay cases.

Employment tribunal decision is due on these two legal issues.
