What is the future for gender, ethnicity, and other pay gap reporting?

Equal Pay | Gender Pay | Gender Pay Gap | Gender Pay Reporting | Ethnicity Pay Reporting

Only five years have passed since gender pay gap reporting was first made mandatory in the UK and a lot has gone on since 2017. Before the pandemic, we were only just starting to scratch the surface in terms of drawing patterns and tracing trends, and furlough blew a lot of that data out of the window by opening up short term pay gaps which are only now starting to recede back. The data and data-gathering in this whole area is still very immature and could certainly benefit from more introspection, checks and balances in several key areas.

Three essential areas to address around pay gaps and equality

Equal Pay | Equal Pay Audits | Pay Structure | Pay benchmarking | Job evaluation | Pay Review

Instances of unequal pay can manifest all too easily, but they can also be guarded against by putting checks and balances in place and maintaining those with regular auditing.

What does gender pay gap reporting say about your business?

Equal Pay | Equal Pay Audits | Gender Pay | Gender Pay Gap | Gender Pay Reporting

Since the Gender Pay Gap Regulations came into effect in 2017 organisations with more than 250 employees have been reporting their gender pay gap. Increasingly organisations with fewer than 250 employees, and therefore not required to report, have been publishing their gender pay gap as the importance and value of reporting continues to be seen.

Pay Transparency | Pay Fairness | Equal Pay | Measuring pay

Teachers are a good example of a variable or irregular work pattern, so how can you handle transparency in roles that don’t work your typical nine to five, and how can these roles be fairly and equally compared with the traditional Monday to Friday workforce?

Disability reporting – not just a tick box exercise

Equal Pay | Disability Reporting

The need for employers to conduct disability reporting has been brought into sharp focus this week with the publication of an open letter to the Prime Minister calling for mandatory reporting on the number of disabled people in the workforce. However, calling for mandatory reporting isn’t quite as straightforward as is would seem. Justine Woolf reviews some of the potential barriers.

Pay Inequality: what could go wrong?

Pay Fairness | Equal Pay | Equal Pay Audits

Most organisations do not deliberately set out to discriminate in terms of pay, but given the c.29,000 claims a year it’s clearly not uncommon. Recent headline-grabbing cases have detailed staggering settlements, but the implications of not establishing pay equity can span much further than this. Cathryn Edmondson discusses.

Equal Pay – are we making progress?

Equal Pay | Equal Pay Audits

It is clear Equal Pay remains a large business risk for many employers, and while most organisations have a ‘gut feel’ that they do not operate discriminatory pay practices, it is almost impossible to make a proper assessment without conducting the right pay tests. Emer Bucukoglu takes a look at what an Equal Pay Audit entails.

Pay equality: why now is the time to get your house in order

Corporate Governance | Pay Transparency | Pay Fairness | Equal Pay | Exec pay | Covid-19 | Responsible Reward

The long-term picture will only become known with the passage of time, however, whilst business may be a little slower and some of our typical processes postponed, the world will keep turning and a return to a feudalist barter system seems a little unlikely, which is why now is a great time to prepare for the future.
