Following the Supreme Court ruling that has given the go-ahead to former employees to launch unequal pay claims, Birmingham City Council says it is considering its options.
Lawyers say the landmark case could have "huge implications".
“Equal pay litigation until now has always been pursued in employment tribunals as these tribunals are experienced and specifically trained in dealing with such claims. In addition, there are very limited situations where costs follow the losing party, whereas in the civil court costs almost always follow the losing party.
“The Council is reviewing this judgement in detail before considering its options going forward and will be making no further comment at this stage”.
