equal remuneration order

An equal remuneration order is a rule set by the Fair Work Commission to address wage disparities in specific industries within the Social, Community, Home Care, and Disability Services Industry Award.

This order is a legal decision made to correct pay imbalances between different types of employees, particularly in sectors like social and community services. It aims to ensure fairness by mandating equal pay for work of equal value, considering factors like skills and responsibilities. This helps in tackling systemic pay gaps and promoting equity in the workplace.
