Discrimination on the basis of sex in employment is unlawful.

The gender pay gap is a measure of the difference between average earnings of women and men.

It results from a number of social and economic factors that reduce women's earning capacity, including discrimination and bias in recruitment and the determination of salary.

If you believe that you are getting paid less than your male counterparts at work because of your sex, you can make a discrimination complaint to our office.
