Greedy lawyers are making a fortune out of inequality

Predatory lawyers such as Stefan Cross seem to be getting rich on ‘no-brainer’ equal pay cases where the hard work of finding comparators and demonstrating equal value has already been done for them at councils where pay and grading reviews have been completed (Personnel Today, 5 December).


Councils that haven’t completed pay reviews might now be tempted to limit their exposure to such claims by drawing ‘pay lines’ that minimise the number of those jobs, and also the extent to which the pay of predominantly female low-paid jobs is levelled up.
