The Government has announced it will proceed with plans to require employers who lose equal pay claims before an Employment Tribunal to undertake and publish equal pay audits. The intention is to ensure pay inequality does not continue in that employment. Businesses with fewer than 10 employees will initially be exempt from the proposal although this will be reviewed. Employment Tribunals will be obliged to impose pay audits on employers who are found to have discriminated on the grounds of sex in contractual or non‑contractual pay matters where continuing discrimination is likely. If however an audit has been completed in the last 3 years or the employer has transparent pay practices or can show good reason why it would not be useful, an audit will not be ordered.
