Considers the ethics of the “new pay”, a prescriptive model of pay management which has exercised increasing influence over reward practice in recent years. Makes two primary criticisms of the new pay ‐ that it seeks to impose excessive risk on employees and that it affords little scope for involvement of employee representatives in the selection, design and operation of reward systems.
