Half the workforce at arbitration body Acas is making a claim against theiremployer of indirect sex discrimination. The Public Services and CommercialServices Union is bringing the action on behalf of 464 of its members in adispute over pay levels, which are linked to length of unbroken service ratherthan the experience and contribution of individuals. Although some men are being represented in the action, the union allegesthat women have been most affected by the system because they take careerbreaks to have children and are then penalised because their length of servicehas been broken.
