The paper seeks to draw attention to the complexity involved in developing fair procedures for assessing equal value in employment. It first highlights different aspects of fairness in relation to employment procedures and some of the problems associated with the use of procedures in relation to job evaluation and sex bias. The paper then explores the nature of the conflicts that are part of equal pay for work of equal value procedures within the UK before examining the nature of power that some have who are involved in procedures both within the workplace and in Employment Tribunal.
