Bishopsgate Law employment law solicitors can give advice about making equal pay claims and represent claimants at an employment tribunal.
The Equality Act 2010 gives a right to equal pay for men and women doing equal work. This covers people in the same employment and includes equality in pay and other contractual terms.
Normally, if you believe you are not being paid equally you should first try and resolve the situation by raising a grievance through your employer's grievance procedure.
For more detailed information about the Equality Act 2010, please see our free guide to your rights at work.
An employee who believes they have been denied their right to equal pay may be able to bring a claim before an employment tribunal.
Strict time limits apply to employment tribunal claims, so get legal advice without delay.
If you believe you may have a case to make an employment tribunal claim, we can make an assessment of your case based on the facts and information you send us by e-mail.
You can arrange an appointment to see an employment lawyer at our offices in London EC2, or Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
