Amendments to the EEA which came into effect in 2014 include the equal work for equal pay clause.  This clause has caused some interesting debates in the Labour market and proved not to be a simple matter whatsoever.  Section 6(4) of the EEA provides for three causes of action in respect of equal pay. They are as follows: (a) equal pay for the same work; (b) equal pay for substantially the same work; and (c) equal pay for work of equal value.
