Equal pay policy

Purpose and scope

The purpose of this Equal Pay Policy is to ensure that all employees and job applicants are treated equally and to support the Company’s objective of ensuring that it provides equal pay to men and women for the same or broadly similar work, for work rated as equivalent and for work of equal value.

For the purposes of this Policy and in line with relevant legislation:

Pay is defined as “The ordinary basic or minimum wage or salary and any other consideration, whether in cash or kind, which the worker receives directly or indirectly, in respect of his (or her) employment from his (or her) employer”. Pay includes basic pay, bonuses and sick pay, as well as other additional benefits, such as pensions, promotion and training opportunities.

Like work is defined as work which is the same or broadly similar.

Work rated as equivalent is defined as work which has achieved the same or a similar number of points under a job evaluation scheme.

Work of equal value is defined as work which is of broadly equal value when compared under headings such as effort, skill and decisions.

The Policy applies to all employees within the Company and, unless otherwise stated, all references to employees include potential employees, former employees, full-time and part-time employees.

This Policy does not form part of your terms and conditions of employment.
