Business on pay equity group
Business representatives on the pay equity working group have welcomed the resumption of work towards new pay equity legislation.
BusinessNZ and the Employers and Manufacturers Association, along with the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions and the Government are part of the working group addressing the pay levels of women working in women-dominated jobs.
Issues for resolution include criteria for accepting pay equity claims and selecting male comparators when adjudicating claims.
BusinessNZ Chief Executive Kirk Hope said it would be important for the new legislation to enable legitimate pay equity claims to be easily identified and settled.
The joint working group is expected to make recommendations for the new legislation next month.
