Equal pay and the Equality Act 2010

The ‘equality of terms’ provisions in the Equality Act 2010 (the Act) entitle a woman doing equal work with a man in the same employment to equality in pay and other terms and conditions.

The Act implies a sex equality clause automatically into her contract of employment, ensuring that her contractual terms are no less favourable than his. The man with whom she is claiming equal pay is known as her comparator.
