Engel v Ministry of Justice

Employment – Remuneration. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the applicant's renewed application for permission to appeal against a judge's decision that, despite legal chairs of the Residential Property Tribunals Service (RPTS) not being paid pro rata to the pay of their full-time comparators, namely, judges of the First-tier Tribunal (Tax Chamber), on the balance of probabilities, the respondent Ministry of Justice had demonstrated the existence of a non-discriminatory reason for the terms enjoyed by RPTS chairs. There was no prospect that the Court of Appeal would hold that the conclusion to which the judge came to had not been open to him.
