Equal Pay

Equal pay is generally used to refer to the provisions of the Equal Pay Act 1970 which requires men and women to be paid the same where they are employed on like work, work rated as equivalent under a valid pay evaluation scheme, or work of equal value, unless the pay difference can be objectively justified. In order to comply with equal pay legislation it is recommended that employers have a job evaluation scheme in place and that they carry out an equal pay audit to highlight and rectify any disparities.
