Carlo Breen instructed by Knowsley MBC

Carlo Breen instructed by Knowsley MBC to represent them in multi million pound mass equal pay claims brought by female workers. The case is distinguishable from the well known Bury Mbc case ( in which Carlo Breen acted) as in this case it was denied that the link with productivity was broken in relation to the male bonus earners, by reason of market forces. No local authority has previously adopted this defence to circumvent recent case law. The 5 week hearing is currently being litigated in the Liverpool employment tribunal.
