Equal pay, an aspect of sex discrimination law, has been in force for over 40 years, giving to men and women the right to be paid at the same rate for the same, or equivalent, work. You’ll find here information on equal pay for equal value, the gender pay gap, equal pay audits, comparable worth, equal pay law and case law.
