Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value

Based on the requirements of the Employment Equity Act, it is essential to have an overview of equality within an organisation. The 21st Century equality report will give you this overview.

Employers need to discriminate fairly when there is unequal remuneration and/or terms and conditions of employment for employees whose work is the same or similar.

  • Fair recruitment, selection and appointment
  • A defensible system of job evaluation
  • Defensible pay scales and mid-point differentials
  • Periodic monitoring that there are no indefensible differences in remuneration and terms and conditions of employment between gender, race, disability, pregnancy or any other prohibited or arbitrary ground
  • Making adjustments towards achieving equity as required
Learn more about the legislation
When there is unequal remuneration and/or terms and conditions of employment, the Act and Regulations considers fair discrimination (within the same employer) for the following:

  • Same work as another employee
  • If work is identical
  • If work is interchangeable
  • If work is substantially the same or sufficiently similar to be reasonably considered as similar
  • If work is of the same value of another employee in a different job
