Employment Law Relating to Equal Pay Assistance

Equal pay and wages

Increasing awareness of the Gender Pay Gap – as well as discrimination based on age and ethnicity – has increased the call for greater transparency regarding staff salaries. As of 2017, all companies with over 250 members of staff are required to report on any differences found in pay between male and female staff within four pay bands. Loch Law can provide timely assistance to fulfil this legal requirement, and help to ensure that pay legislation is adhered to within your organisation. This may include conducting a full evaluation of staff roles and their corresponding salaries, as well as addressing or justifying discrepancies where necessary. Our team of expert employment lawyers will work with you to review your precise financial structure, delivering assurance that your organisation meets its statutory requirements in relation to the Equality Act 2010, the National Minimum Wage, and other pay legislation. Committing to equal pay and a fair financial structure not only helps to defend against claims for unjustifiable differences in pay, but can also have a positive impact on existing employees, corporate culture and the recruitment process.

Testimonials

The expertise of Loch Law made me feel in very safe hands. Caroline was thorough in explaining the legal situation, giving clear advice and was committed to getting me a fair outcome

Senior Professional

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help and please let whoever helps you get this out of the door know that I appreciate theirs too!

Loch Law Client

Thank you so much for your advice. I really appreciate the fact that you were able to understand the nature of our company and tailor your advice accordingly. I think that ability is key in defining a good lawyer. Lawyers who cannot deviate from 100% security are of little use.

Loch Law Client

The speed of their service levels combined with high-quality advice always exceeds our expectations and as a result, we have been a satisfied client of the firm for over 7 years.

I cannot recommend Joe Milner at the Tunbridge Wells office highly enough. He was extremely helpful and reassuring, and settled my claim quickly and efficiently. What a delightful chap to do business with.

What does ‘equal pay for equal work’ mean?

Under the Equality Act 2010, men and women are entitled to receive equal pay for equal work. Equal work can be:

  • Like work, i.e. work which involves similar skills, tasks and responsibilities;
  • Equivalent work, i.e. work which is found to be of equal value on analysis;
  • Equally valuable work, i.e. work which is not similar or equivalent, but has been found to be of equal value in terms of output and techniques used

“Equal pay” refers to the entire pay and benefits package. Beyond basic pay, this may include:

  • Access to pensions schemes and any associated benefits;
  • Bonuses and performance-dependent benefits;
  • Hours of work, holiday allowance and breaks;
  • Perks such as company cars, health insurance and gym memberships;
  • Severance and redundancy pay.
