ABSTRACT
The article provides information on several court cases related to employment in Great Britain. The case Eagles v Rugged Systems indicates that statutory dismissal procedures that have been repealed may still be relevant in some cases. In McAvoy v South Tyneside Borough Council, the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) ruled that a man is entitled to present a piggyback equal pay claim, and such a claim can be made before the woman's right to equal pay has been established.
