The Distributive Justice of Equal Pay under the Equality Act

The Equal Pay Act 1970 was the main piece of UK legislation with regard to the pay of men and women and has since been incorporated into the Equality Act 2010. The Act looks at pay in three main areas: (1) Work that is the same, or broadly the same; (2) Work of equal value; and (3) Work that is rated the same as that of a comparator. There are no shortage of articles and publications on the topic of equal pay, so I thought that I would write this article with a slightly different focus – the ‘Distributive Justice’ of equal pay under the Equality Act.

With a brief reference to academic literature, this blog looks at the seven “Leadership Theories”.

A review into the pay structure at the BBC has found that there is no gender bias in relation to pay decisions at the corporation. The report, conducted by auditors PwC, was published last week and found a 6.8% gender pay gap among on-air staff.
