star this property answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 ensures that employers must pay women the same as men, irrespective of economic sector, where they are employed to do like work, work rated as equivalent or equal value work. As well as pay, these “equality of terms” provisions also require other contractual terms, such as bonuses and access to opportunities, to be offered on equal terms to men and women.</p><p> </p><p>Where an employer allegedly breaches the equality of terms provisions in the 2010 Act, an employee can enforce their rights by making a claim in an Employment Tribunal within 6 months of the alleged breach. An employer found in breach may be liable to pay compensation and/or costs.</p><p> </p><p>Prior to considering legal action, employees who feel that their employer has breached the equality of terms provisions in the 2010 Act can seek advice from the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas). Acas provides free authoritative and impartial advice to employees and employers via their website (<a href="http://www.acas.org.uk/" target="_blank">www.acas.org.uk</a>) and via its telephone helpline (08457 47 47 47). Advice can also be sought from the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS), which provides free bespoke advice and support to individuals with discrimination enquiries. The EASS can be contacted via its website (<a href="http://www.equalityadvisoryservice.com/" target="_blank">http://www.equalityadvisoryservice.com/</a>), or via telephone (0808 8000082, textphone users can call 0808 8000084).</p><p> </p><p>The Equality and Human Right Commission has published extensive equal pay guidance for both employers and employees on its website at: <a href="https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/our-work/equal-pay" target="_blank">https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/our-work/equal-pay</a></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Government established <em>Think, Act, Report </em>in 2011 to provide a simple, step by step framework for companies to build gender equality into their business planning, particularly in relation to recruitment, retention, promotion and pay. Now over 280 businesses, collectively employing well over 2.5 million employees are signed up, providing a powerful community of best practice who are leading the way on gender equality in the workplace. To further champion gender equality in the workplace, Government set up the Women’s Business Council in 2012, which is delivering a wide range of programmes to tackle discrimination and drive culture change through industry-led solutions to support the advancement of women. Staff representatives play a vital role in supporting their colleagues to address unacceptable attitudes and practices. Acas (the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) has published guidance for employers on ‘Trade Union Representation in the Workplace’ which is available online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.acas.org.uk/media/pdf/4/8/Trade-Union-Representation-in-the-Workplace-accessible-version.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.acas.org.uk/media/pdf/4/8/Trade-Union-Representation-in-the-Workplace-accessible-version.pdf</a></p>
