The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has overturned a previous EAT decision that a woman claiming equal pay can compare her pay to her successor. The EAT looked into whether a comparison with a successor provided an adequate basis from which a concrete appraisal could be made. The EAT decided that the exercise of comparing with a successor was too hypothetical and that comparators should be employed at the same time as the claimant.
