Employees have a right to equal remuneration for equal value of work done.

Section 5 of the Employment Act provides that an Employer should pay his employees equal remuneration for work of equal value. V M K v Catholic University of Eastern Africa Nairobi Industrial Cause No. 1161 0f 2010 .The terms fair and reasonable are to be interpreted in the context of the standards at a particular work place, the national labour standards and with due regard to international labour standards. In the present case, the remuneration accorded the Claimant, vis a visher colleagues employed relatively at the same time, and doing work of equal value was far from fair and the working conditions she was subjected to were not reasonable at all in the context of the particular work place, and the national labour standards as we have already demonstrated. http://kenyalaw.org/caselaw/cases/view/92535/
