Equal Pay Statement
Equal Pay Statement
The University of Glasgow is committed to the principles of equal pay for all of our employees. We operate a single job evaluation scheme to measure the relative value of all jobs in our pay and grading structures within an overall framework that is consistent, transparent and fair. The University aims to eliminate any gender bias in our pay and remuneration systems and understands that equal pay between males and females is a legal right in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, Public Sector Equality Duty and European law.
Our Policy aims to reflect equal pay with respect to remuneration, development and career progression for all staff in ensuring that the level of reward is appropriate to the relative size and content of the job. It is in the interests of the University to ensure that we have fair and just pay and remuneration systems as this assists in attracting and retaining the best employees. The University’s policies and procedures associated with pay and remuneration have been developed and implemented with a view to eliminating gender bias. Further, we regularly review our processes, in partnership with the recognised trade unions, to ensure their integrity in relation to equal pay considerations.
We believe that eliminating gender bias in pay and remuneration processes demonstrates the University’s commitment to its employees and students and best practice through equitable, fair and transparent pay and reward mechanisms whilst effectively managing University finances. We believe avoiding unfair discrimination in the ‘application of equitable and fair pay and performance systems that reward excellence’ helps the University to realise its ambitions as outlined in the University Strategy.
Our equal pay objectives are to:
- eliminate any unfair, unjust or unlawful practices that impact on pay
- take appropriate action to address these accordingly
- regularly monitor and review the application of its policies and procedures and
- conduct an annual equal pay review in terms of gender, and within the relevant timeframe, to do so for disability and ethnicity in accordance with the Public Sector Equality Duty.
The results of annual equal pay auditing informs future action planning in relation to potential issues identified, i.e. addressing occupational segregation. Additionally, other diversity initiatives upon which the University is embarking, may positively impact upon aspects of equal pay and occupational segregation, e.g. the Public Sector Equality Duty Equality Outcomes, the University’s Equality and Diversity Strategy and Athena SWAN Charter status.
The Equal Pay Statement has been agreed by Court and is effective from 10th April 2013.
