At present, unequal pay for work of equal value is indirectly regulated by the Employment Equity Act which aims to promote equality in the workplace. The Act does not expressly prohibit the unequal pay for work of equal value but merely prohibits discriminatory practices, including unequal pay and separate pension funds for different race groups in the company. It will be argued that South Africa requires legislation governing unequal pay for work of equal value. The research reflected in this paper suggests that no struggle for equal pay will be successful unless express provisions for pay equity are included in legislation.
