This annotation analyses an equal pay case relating to wage supplements for public servants and employees in the public service in relation to their family size. Those supplements were calculated differently for employees and public servants. The claimants submitted that this resulted in disparate impact on women and men respectively, but were unable to bring the relevant statistics. The author considers that the Federal Labour Court is right in rejecting these claims, but argues that the Court did not apply the complex concept of indirect discrimination under EU law correctly.
