The Government has launched a consultation asking for views on taking forward its manifesto commitment that large employers should publish ethnicity pay data. The consultation closes on 11 January 2019.
The consultation paper does not indicate when ethnicity pay reporting is expected to come into force. The Government is considering implementing a trial or phased approach in which it works with some employers in the public and private sectors to test different approaches before mandatory reporting is introduced.
