This Bill aims to establish the policy, rules and employment processes which aim to eliminate gender-based discrimination, in terms of pay and other conditions of employment. It sets out a process for employees to file a pay equity claim and for regulators to consider:
• whether a pay equity claim has merit;
• matters that could be considered as part of a pay equity assessment;
• identifying appropriate comparators.

Please note: If there is a change of government following the General Election, the Bill may be changed.
In either case, however, NZNO is interested in comment and feedback from members who have, or may potentially be, affected by pay equity regulation.
Feedback due: to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 October 2017.
