    A Comparative Analysis of Promoting Pay Equity: Models and Impacts

    01 October 2006

    The variety of causes leading to gender inequalities in pay makes it apparent that no single policy measure is sufficient to reduce them. A set of interventions that simultaneously address each cause of the gender pay gap is necessary. Job evaluation methods help tackle discrimination in remuneration by comparing and establishing, on the basis of objective criteria, the relative value of two different jobs. Job evaluation helps to determine when two jobs that differ in content are of “equal value” and, thus, entitled to equal remuneration.
