Ethnicity pay gap will 'lead to flood of tribunal claims'

SA Law Employment solicitor Nikita Sonecha comments in The Times about the proposed plans announced for an ethnicity pay gap report for employers with 250 or more employees. 

Nikita adds her voice to fellow lawyers who have warned that the proposed attack on the ethnicity pay gap would not be a quick fix and that tribunals should prepare for a flood of claims under the plans. 

"Race discrimination claims will increase exponentially if the proposed measures are implemented. It will be easier for individuals to bring such claims and as such data may be key to backing up their claims."
