Equal pay questionnaire is introduced

Implementation date: 6 April 2003

The Employment Act 2002, section 42 amends the Equal Pay Act 1970 to introduce an equal pay questionnaire in employment tribunal equal pay cases, making it easier for individuals to request key information from their employer when deciding whether to bring a case. Although completion of the questionnaire is not compulsory, failure to reply (or evasive replies) may lead to inferences being drawn by a tribunal. Section 42 can be viewed on the OPSI website.
