Equal Pay For Equal Work Agreement

In 2009, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which allows women to sue employers for unfair payment up to 180 days after receiving an unfair paycheck. On January 29, 2016, it signed a regulation requiring all companies employing at least 100 people to disclose the wages of all workers to the federal government, disasmisting wages by race, gender and ethnicity. The aim is to encourage employers, through greater transparency, to give equal pay for equal work. [43] Equal pay for equal work also falls under Article 7 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights[4], Article 4 of the European Social Charter[5] and Article 15 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples` Rights. If circumstances are only part of the wage gap, someone could still have a case of equal pay. For some parts of a right to equal pay, the burden lies with the applicant and the employer for others. Whoever bears the burden must prove his case on the balance of probabilities, which means that he must prove that he is more likely than not. There is no right to equal pay for colleagues of the same sex. An aggrieved worker must be able to compare herself to an employee of the other sex.

Differences in pay and contractual conditions between colleagues of the same sex may be unfair, but there is not necessarily a remedy – let alone a remedy under the Equality Act 2010. .
