Following the introduction of the mandatory requirement for private and publish sector organisations to calculate and publish a gender pay gap report, there have been calls for pay transparency to be extended to others areas affected by inequality and a lack of diversity.
The Conservative Party’s election manifesto contained a commitment to introduce mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting.
The government has now released a consultation on ethnicity pay reporting. The consultation will run until 11 January 2019, with legislation to enact mandatory reporting expected to follow later on in 2019.
More information on gender pay gap reporting can be found on our employment law page.
