Equal Pay

Salary, wages, and pay (including bonuses, holiday pay and notice pay) are fundamental to the employment relationship and the written contract of employment ( if there is one) usually governs the parties rights and obligations in respect of ‘pay’ however there are circumstances where terms can be implied into contracts if, for example, a bonus has consistently been paid in the past it could be said that there is an implied obligation upon the employer to continue to pay a bonus and a failure to pay is potentially a breach of contract. Employees are entitled to be paid their contractual (or statutory) notice period even if the employer does not require them to work during their notice period.

The geographical reach of our network of specialist barristers is such that, subject to availability, we can offer representation at every Tribunal and court in England, Scotland and Wales.
