Your Equal Pay Rights

Dundee City Council has been underpaying female dominated roles for years. The council’s use of “craft agreements” in jobs traditionally dominated by men include a bonus scheme in which workers are paid both productivity bonuses and fixed bonuses every month just for attending work. This scheme was not offered in female dominated roles and as such the council has been in breach of the Equal Pay Act (1970).

How Much Is My Claim Worth

Your claim would be calculated as the difference between your pay and the identified male comparator role going back five years. While it would be hard to put an absolute figure this early into the claim the  craft agreements” bonuses have been worth thousands of pounds more per year. As such a claim figure of over £10,000 would not be unreasonable.
