The Government is due to publish the results of its consultation on mandated ethnicity pay gap reporting. This follows on from the gender pay audit obligations which were added to the Equality Act in 2017. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) also published its first report into ethnicity pay gaps in Britain in 2018.

It is considered best practice for organisations to be aware of the ethnicity pay gap within their organisations, although publication is not mandated. A high ethnicity pay gap can indicate there may a number of issues to deal with, and the individual calculations may help us to identify potential causes.

See our Ethnicity Pay Gap Report as at 31st March 2019.
