Blog: Equal pay and the law - what employers need to know
Blog by Paul Oakes, Manager of the Advisory Services Team.

The case of the woman solicitor who won her equal pay case at Tribunal and was awarded £250,000 has been hitting the headlines today.

In his latest blog, Paul Oakes, Manager of the Equality Commission's Advisory Services Team, says: "
The main point to remember in relation to pay, salaries and benefits, is that employers should start with a presumption that their employees should receive equal pay for equal work under a pay scheme that is reasoned, structured and transparent and certainly not under one that is secretive, arbitrary and ad hoc."

Paul looks of the issue of equal pay and sign posts a number of useful publications for employers.
