Equal Pay

In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 employees must receive equal pay if they are performing the same or a similar role to that of a colleague. The Employer must ensure that all staff earn comparable amounts for the various roles within the business and ensure that men and women earn the same for each job and role.

 

How long do I have to raise a concern?

If you are an employee concerned about discrimination in respect of equal pay you can complain internally whilst in employment ensuring compliance with any employment handbook/policy.

You can also complain to the Employment Tribunal and have up to 6 months from the date that your contract terminated as a direct result of this complaint.

 

Do I need to speak with a Solicitor?

It would be advisable yes. A Solicitor can advise you on your current rights and explain whether mediation or a claim for discrimination would be most appropriate.

Discrimination

 

What types of discrimination are most common in the workplace? 

  1. Direct Discrimination;
  2. Indirect Discrimination;
  3. Harassment;

 

What examples are there of each type of discrimination?

Direct Discrimination – This could be rejecting people for a job or discriminating against current employees on the basis of religion, skin colour, or sexual orientation.

An example would be that all women must work overtime unpaid or that only men could apply for a promotion.

Indirect Discrimination – This could be giving some staff certain tasks to perform and not others, placing demands on some staff and not others or grouping people together on the basis of race, sex or age.

Verbal / Physical Abuse – This could be jokes about particular people or false rumours about certain staff, inappropriate touching, physical violence or sexual harassment.

Victimisation – This could be treating someone less favourably because they are part of a Union, or because they complained about someone, or because of their race, age, sexual orientation.

Legal Aid

After 1st April 2013 the LASPO Act changed the way legal aid was applied to family law.

Legal aid funding is now limited to:

  • Cases involving child protection or;
  • When you are able to produce evidence of domestic violence within the relationship.

Legal aid remains available in the area of family mediation.

If you were awarded legal aid before April 1st 2013, you are entitled to continue with your legal matter using legal aid.

If you now wish to be assessed for legal aid for family mediation, you will need to pass a means test. This assesses your income and expenditure and establishes whether you are financially eligible for legal aid.

For further information visit https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/legal-aid-agency where you can assess whether or not you may be eligible for legal aid.
