Résumé
The project aims at the effective implementation of the principle of equal pay for work of equal value in Jordan. It will adopt a three-pronged strategy : 1) lobbying for the amendment of national legislation in line with ILO Convention No. 100 ; 2) developing the capacity of ILO constituents in Jordan to undertake gender-neutral job evaluations, and 3) raising awareness and sensitizing constituents, authorities and the general public on pay equity issues. The first component of the strategy includes the dissemination of the recommendations emanating from a policy-oriented legal review with a view to identifying steps for realizing the necessary legislative changes. The second component comprises training for selected constituents on how to undertake gender-neutral job evaluation with the objective of subsequently piloting it in the private education sector. The third component involves disseminating information and raising awareness on pay equity issues through a Media and Advocacy Sub-committee within the National Steering Committee on Pay Equity (NSCPE).
