Hutton review of fair pay in public sector publishes summary of responses
Will Hutton’s review of fair pay in the public sector has published a summary of responses to its call for evidence, and the principal arguments made in submissions to the Review.
The Fair Pay Review issued a public “call for evidence” in July 2010, inviting views from all interested parties on the issues around fair pay. Responses to the call for evidence - which closed in September - will inform the Review’s thinking on fairness principles and contribute to the evidence base for the Review’s interim and final reports and policy recommendations.
The Review states: “Respondents were generally supportive of the principle that rewards should be proportional to work effort and the value of work done, and offered a range of views on how this principle should be implemented in practice, and on the other key challenges to fair pay.”
