ARC’s Equal Pay case closes

Unfortunately, we have now heard that the Supreme Court has refused permission to appeal. There is no requirement for the Supreme Court to give reasons for the decision to refuse permission to appeal, nor any right to review this application. We are also not able to progress this appeal any further e.g. European Court of Justice. Therefore this case and challenge has to now come to a close.

Vicky Johnson, former ARC president

She has worked all her life, to the best of my knowledge she never had any time off sick and rarely missed a day (even when my brother or I were ill). She strives to remain independent as she gets older and her memory fades.

Helen Baird-Parker, ARC Equality Officer

I think that without her, I wouldn’t be where I am now although she probably still hasn’t forgiven me for going into tax and not human rights. She taught about the international human rights framework in relation to cultural relativism, feminism, Marxism and all sorts of things I had never really engaged with rigorously before.
