Statement on pay tribunal

By on 27/04/2010 in News

Commenting on the outcome of the  equal pay employment tribunals between S Barker and others (claimants) and Birmingham City Council (respondent), Cllr Alan Rudge, Cabinet Member for Equalities and Human Resources, said today:

“The issue that was considered by the employment tribunal relates to the old pay and grading structure – in particular the outdated bonus systems.

“In 2007 we took positive action to remove the inappropriate bonus schemes and implemented a revised pay and grading structure, which falls within the Equal Opportunity Commission's equality guidelines and was endorsed through an independent external audit.

“It is too early to determine financial implications and currently, consideration is being given as to whether there are grounds for appeal on any aspects of the decision.”
