S Villalba v Merrill Lynch & Co

In an equal pay claim, the elimination of discrimination on grounds of sex could not require objective justification for differences in pay in circumstances where an employer had successfully rebutted a presumption of direct sex discrimination and there was no independent evidence of any kind to show that sex had any influence on the difference in pay. Such a requirement was not established by the case of Brunnhofer v Bank der Osterreichischen Postparkasse AG (C-381/99) [2001] IRLR 571.
