If you think you are not receiving equal pay at work, your might have a discrimination claim against your employer. Our employment solicitors will tell you if you have a claim.
The Equal Pay Act was passed in 1970 and it made it illegal to treat men and women differently based on their gender.
Broadly speaking, male and female employees must be treated equally or equivalently for equal work.
If you think you are being underpaid or treated unfairly in comparison to others, and you think this is simply because of your gender, talk to Tees. Our specialist employment law team will tell you if you have a case for discrimination, and help you assert your rights at work. If you feel you are being unfairly treated differently for a reason other than your gender, you may still have a claim under other legislation. Our expeerts can advise you on your rights and options that might be available to you.
If you feel unfairly treated at work, you have options. These include:
