ABSTRACT
The article presents the rulings of Great Britain's Employee Appeal Tribunal (EAT) on several labor cases. In Dumfries and Galloway Council v. North, the EAT ruled that the 200 female classroom assistants failed to prove that their work possesses equal value with that of the male council manual workers. In Compass Group v. Okoro, it held that the firm should have carried out an investigation before dismissing the defendant, while in NHS Foundation Trust vs. Abimbola, it ruled against the claimant for his dishonesty in giving evidence.
