We all like to feel that we are valued in our jobs and that our salary accurately reflects our abilities, dedication and value to the organisation. Therefore, perceived unfairness in someone’s remuneration can lead to feelings of resentment and can negatively affect performance and morale.
Workplace mediation can be an excellent way to resolve disputes that arise around issues relating to pay. Specific issues may include:
Someone feels aggrieved when they find out they’re paid considerably less than a colleague doing a similar job
An individual doesn’t believe they’re being paid what they’re worth
Someone believes they’re being discriminated because of their gender or ethnicity
