The article examines the implementation of the Equality Act 2010 in Great Britain, a law which aims to enhance the principles in the discrimination law, particularly those on equal pay. It notes that the gender pay gap in the whole economy is around 22 percent and that there was a fivefold increase in the number of equal pay cases held at tribunals between 2006 and 2009. Chris Warhurst of the University of Sydney and other experts comment on pay differences and how they can be resolved.
