I have to do a witness statement for an equal pay/sex discrimination case. At the CMD the judge asked for gender statistics from respondent by certain date and I had to state if adverse disparate impact. When I got them, it showed significant differential so I claimed adverse disparate impact on women. Now respondent saying those figures were wrong and new figures show greatly reduced differential?? Where do I stand now that Respondent has changed the figures after the court deadline - this seems ridiculous! Do I need to challenge this or do I simply have to accept it? Have been told by a solicitor initial appointment I have strong case for sex discrimination /equal pay so should I just focus on that and not worry about adverse disparate impact?

Hi, one click two clicks, firstly can I say good luck,secondly if you need any advice re tribunal or appeal tribunal I will do my best to help!
On the issue you have stated, you will find as long as the information was submitted and accepted at the tribunal you should not be disadvantaged for another of your ex/employers mistakes, the question should be put to your employer via a re arranged CMD, or in the tribunal ,How they have come up with this new figure, and why/how was the original one wrong?
I would still go for adverse disparate impact route as well as the other two mentioned,
Is your ex/employer a big organization? Have you asked for all your personal data they hold? I.e any emails that they have discussed you in, all training records held, basically all electronic/paper based information the company hold on you? wine

Quick question - I have found two new comparators who were less qualified than me but given better pay. Can I add them to my witness statement or should I ask Tribunal?
