Cloisters intervenes in Court of Appeal test cases on shared parental leave

On 1st – 2nd May the Court of Appeal will consider the landmark appeals of Ali v Capita and Hextall v Leicestershire Constabulary.

The CA is asked to determine whether the failure to match pay for shared parental leave to the level of maternity pay constitutes direct or indirect sex discrimination. Chris Milsom acts for the intervener Working Families whose position was upheld by the EAT below i.e. that the failure to offer equivalent pay could give rise to a complaint of indirect sex discrimination.

The appeals will be live-streamed here.
