Equal pay for equal work

Equal pay for equal work is the concept of labour rights that individuals doing the same work should receive the same remuneration. Among international human rights law, the Article 7 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Article 15 of African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights ensure the “equal pay for equal work”. The Constitution of the International Labour Organization also proclaims “the principles of equal remuneration for equal value”.
