New guidance: Acas publishes new equal pay guidance

Acas has published new, free, online guidance ‘Equal Pay’ to help both employers and employees better understand equal pay law.

Equal pay laws are designed to stop discrimination between men and women in their terms of employment, including pay.

The new guidance sets out the law, how employers can prevent equal pay issues arising, and how employees can raise equal pay issues – and includes good practice guidelines for employers to follow if they do.

It recommends obtaining legal advice and also checking out the ‘Equal Pay: Statutory Code of Practice’ when dealing with such issues, due to their complexity.
