Pay equity claim oversight and support

Oversight and support is available for MSD-funded organisations against whom a pay equity claim has been raised. This is not compulsory for providers but is there for employers who wish to take advantage of the assistance.

What is Pay Equity?

Pay equity is about women and men receiving the same pay for doing jobs that are different but are of equal value. While two jobs may look different to each other, they may involve similar skills, responsibilities, conditions, experience and effort.

Workforces composed of more women than men can bring pay equity claims against their employers under the Equal Pay Act 1972. The aim of these claims is to establish undervaluation of their roles and achieve a pay correction going forward.
