Enmployment Law


I would like some views on the use of employment law to enable the pay scales of employees to be brought more into line with one another. At the moment there is a discrepency of around £8k per year for some people doing the same job, same job title etc. The only problem is that they are all males. Can the Employment Law - Equal Oppotunites part be used in this case ?

  1. Hi
    The Equal Pay Act and the Equal VAlue Amendment require comparitors of the opposite gender.I am not aware of any variation being accepted by tribunals.What is the whole corporate context like? Are there any comparitors of the opposite sex outside the immediate work area? Hayward v Cammell Laird 1984 et al is a useful reference point.Canteen Assistant v Joiner,Painter and Heating Engineer(m)

    Ask the Equal Opportunities Commission in Manchester for further advice
