Equal pay for equal work has highlighted the urgency and responsibility that organisations have in ensuring that their job profiles / descriptions are relevant, accurate and current.  Not having an accurate job profile could mean the difference in recruiting the right talent and defending equal pay for equal work in your organisation.
