Carlo Breen instructed to defend a North West Local Authority on multiple equal pay claims

Carlo represented a North West Local Authority in the first case of its kind in the UK in challenging the validity of the 1987 white book job evaluation on the basis that the evaluated roles had materially altered, and thus the jobs could not be rated as equivalent.

The claim was worth £27 million and is a landmark case as no other local council had taken this point, and there was no legal precedent to follow.
