Businesses may be required to report ethnicity pay gap

Nikita Sonecha comments in People Management on the plans announced that ethnicity pay gap reports may become mandatory under new plans by the Prime Minister. 

Nikita says "Such a proposal is not intended to ‘name and shame’ companies where there is a race or ethnicity diversity gap, but enable them to see if there are any such issues and if so, whether these can be resolved." 

The article also mentions the launch of a consultation which will run until January 2019 where organisations will be given the opportunity to share their views on what statistics should be published, if ethnicity pay gap reports are published.
