The Supreme Court has ruled that employees can bring an equal pay claim based on comparators working at a different location but employed by the same employer, provided their terms of employment would remain broadly similar were they employed at the same location as the claimants. The fact that the comparators would never work there in reality (because that type of job would never be required there) was irrelevant. A different worksite will only disqualify a comparator if geography plays a significant part in determining what the comparator’s terms of employment are. (North v Dumfries and Galloway Council)
