Ethnicity pay gap reporting
Mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting in the UK was a key recommendation in The McGregor-Smith Review into Race in the Workplace in 2017. In October 2018 the government launched a consultation to look at how such race pay gap reporting might work in practice. The measure hopes to build on the gender pay gap reporting requirements for larger UK employers with the intention of reducing wage inequality for black and minority ethnic (BME) workers.
