ABSTRACT
The author argues that the Equal Opportunities Commission's proposal for new equal pay legislation could suspend women's rights to claim pay equality while giving employers the licence to discriminate. He states that the new legislation would deprive individual claimants of their rights for a period of time and it is unlikely this would comply with European legislative obligations.
