How to Claim for Equal Pay in Scotland?
Equal pay laws are in place to ensure that employees performing the same job receive the same pay, regardless of their sex. However, many people do not know how to go about claiming for equal pay.
If you believe that you are not being paid the same as your male colleagues, the first step is to speak to your employer. Ask them to conduct an equal pay audit, which will compare the pay of men and women in the same roles. If there are disparities, your employer should be able to explain why this is the case.
If you are not happy with the results of the audit, or if your employer refuses to carry out an audit, then you can make a claim to the Employment Tribunal. You must do this within six months of leaving your job.
