I was shocked to read this week that male executives in Scotland’s private sector are paid on average £10,000 more than their female colleagues.  The news reports also claimed that it would take another 75 years for women’s pay to catch up with men’s in Scotland – that’s 116 years since the introduction of the Equal Pay Act in 1970.

Women have waited long enough for equal pay and more really needs to be done.  Greater transparency in salary banding and naming and shaming organisations who fail to pay men and women equally for the same job would be a good place to start to get change in the private sector.

If you think that you’re a victim of pay discrimination, the law is on your side and you can take steps to get redress, but this sort of discrimination shouldn’t be happening in the first place.  My friends at Thompsons Solicitors are experts in dealing with equal pay claims as well as other employment disputes so if you need advice give them a call.
