Sage VIP Seminars: Pay equality – Aug 2015

Significant changes have been made to the Labour Relations Act and the Employment Equity Act, and its regulations regarding equality in pay and benefits. 

The new requirements focus on the equalising of pay and other conditions of employment for employees in the same or similar job or work of equal value. Differences in the terms and conditions of employment without good reason will result in costly claims under the LRA as well as the EEA.

You cannot prove or disprove Pay Equality just by comparing packages. It has to be done using specialised statistical techniques which we will introduce you to. Pay Equality is not a new concept, and there are more than 30 years of international experience to guide you.

In this morning seminar, Andrew Levy – an expert in labour economics and labour law – will give you all the knowledge you need to guide your organisation through the jungle of pay equality in a practical and understandable manner.

Some of the highlights

  • An explanation of the principles and definitions of Equality of Pay and Benefits.
