Equal Pay: Law and Practice
The legal landscape for equal pay has evolved significantly in recent years. The perception of equal pay has been raised by the introduction of compulsory gender pay reporting in the form of the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017.
In addition, cases involving high-profile equal pay claims against employers in the private sector are blazing the way for similar claims to be brought by other women employed in typically female jobs against comparators employed in typically male jobs in any company or business.
Equal Pay is a comprehensive guide to contemporary practice in this field. A brief overview of the reasons for the existence of the Gender Pay Gap is followed by a comprehensive explanation of the law and examination of the 2017 Regulations, detailed and practical assistance on conducting and defending equal pay claims, and consideration of the disclosure of appropriate documents in such cases. To conclude, the book a raises discussion of the possible implications of Brexit on the future of equal pay law.
Equal Pay is a definitive text of its field, giving extensive guidance based on first-hand experience that is useful to both employers and employees and their representatives involved in equal pay cases. It is essential reading for practitioners and students, as well as researchers, employers, employees, human resource personnel, and journalists with a professional interest in the law and practice of equal pay.
