Is Ethnicity Pay Gap Reporting Next?

Companies may be forced to reveal their ethnicity pay gap under plans unveiled by the Prime Minister to help ethnic minority employees at work.

A consultation on mandatory pay reporting is among a number of measures announced by Theresa May.

The consultation will run until January 2019 to allow businesses to share views on what information should be published.

The move follows a Race Disparity Audit last year which revealed significant disparities in pay and promotion opportunities of different groups.

Despite the audit, the number of firms publishing data on ethnicity and pay “remains low”.

The Government has said that this move should hopefully allow for action to be taken, while at the same time avoiding undue burdens on businesses.

This decision comes after the gender pay gap figures which showed wide discrepancies in the workplace between men and women.
