Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of The Fawcett Society commented:

“We know that there are many more equal pay cases at the BBC that have either been settled or remain unresolved. We urge the BBC to bring these cases to a swift conclusion and call on all employers to address unequal pay within their own organisation if and when they find it.

“These cases, and other cases we’ve seen from our own Equal Pay Advice Service, show that we need to modernise equal pay law and give women access to information and the right to know if they are being paid fairly.”
