Employment Equality of treatment of men and women. In equal pay proceedings commenced by the employee, the judge at the pre-hearing review had been correct in finding that it was not appropriate to withdraw the requirement for an independent expert. The onus of proving equal value rested on the employee; same banding did not raise a presumption that the jobs were of equal value.
