Equal Remuneration Act, 1976: Bridging Gender Pay Gap in India

Bhuvana Bojamma

Abstract: Sexism or gender - based discrimination is widespread and pervasive in the employment global market, and it is highly susceptible among workers in industries where employment rules are difficult to execute. Because of their weak negotiating power, women's labour involvement has influenced compensation and returns, resulting in salary discrepancies between men and women. Women's employment generating engagement has been historically low, with the majority of women working in lower - paying jobs. Equal pay for equal labour is a progressive idea in representative democracy cultures where people are treated equally in the workplace. The frequency of females and males, as well as their compensation levels, are closely related. In principle, both in the employment market and in corporations, the lowest - paid professions are those in which women dominate, whereas the highest - paid professions are those in which males predominate.

Keywords: Gender based discrimination, Equal Remuneration Act, 1976, equal remuneration, women's employment
