Equal Pay for Men and Women
Do your colleagues of the opposite sex get paid a higher rate for doing similar work, or get more benefits and perks even though their job duties are about the same as yours?
“Equal pay for equal work” has been discussed for decades, but even today there are often gender gaps when it comes to pay and benefits. Women cannot be paid less for doing "substantially similar" job duties as men (and vice versa). It is important to note that you do not need to be doing exactly the same work or have the same job title – "substantially similar" is enough.
