Equal Opportunities Commission v Secretary of State for Employment

[2007] IRLR 327

Case summary last updated at 06/02/2020 12:28 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Equal Opportunities Commission v Secretary of State for Employment

In the EOC case, the Equal opportunities commission argued that the UK’s differing redundancy package for full time and part time workers discriminated against women. The HL held that the UK law was in contravention of EC law and that it therefore could be disapplied, using Factortame as a precedent for its ability to do this. Similarly it held that any national court, not just the HL, had the power to make such a declaration.
