Why the Government needs to include pay transparency in legislation
Sign Petition to end pay secrecy and demand an independent pay transparency agency to close gender pay gap
The Equal Pay Act makes it unlawful to refuse to offer the same pay, terms of employment, training, or promotion based on the sex of a person, but the inability to compare pay between two people of different sex, for work of equal value is a major obstacle to gender equality.
It’s time to ensure women are not being discriminated against when it comes to their salary, wages and progression.
That’s why the Government needs to include pay transparency in legislation.
The Human Rights Commission has started a campaign asking the Government to establish an independent body to ensure transparency in reporting about pay equity.
Please sign our petition to End pay secrecy and Demand an independent pay transparency agency to close the gender pay gap and circulate through your networks.
If we can get 5,000 signatures by 26th April we will present our petition to Parliament before the Select Committee reports back on the Equal Pay Amendment Bill on 14 May.
