A range of public sector organisations are now actively addressing past pay inequalities. A number of sectoral agreements on pay transparency and equity have been reached between local government, health service and higher education employers and these are currently at various stages of implementation.
Close the Gap has provided support to colleges and universities on conducting pay reviews and producing robust equal pay statements. In partnership with Scotland's Colleges we produced an excellent resource specific to the college sector, Equal Pay Reviews and Job Evaluation: Guidance for Scotland's Colleges.
Close the Gap has also produced a guide for Scottish public authorities on the Public Sector Equality Duty which replaced the Gender Equality Duty (2007) as well as the Race Equality Duty (2002) and the Disability Equality Duty (2006).
Close the Gap can provide free confidential support and assistance to public sector employers in carrying out pay reviews. We can also work with your organisation to identify ways in which you can address any barriers to women’s progression.
