Associated Employers for equal pay purposes

Author headshot image Posted by , Partner

In Glasgow City Council and others v Unison Claimants and another, the Court of Session in Scotland has upheld an EAT decision that a LLP is a company under the definition of “associated employer” for the purposes of domestic equal pay legislation.

The council transferred some of its service into LLPs, over which it maintained significant control. Consequently the council and the LLPs were considered to be associated employers for the purposes of equal pay, so that female employees who had transferred to the LLPs under TUPE could compare their pay with that of male employees who still worked for the council.
