The government has launched a series of measures to tackle barriers facing ethnic minorities in the workplace. The latest government proposal is to launch ethnicity pay gap reporting much like the gender pay gap reporting obligations. To that end, the government launched a consultation seeking views on alternative approaches regarding the ethnicity pay data that should be collected and reported on by employers (e.g. one headline pay gap figure, several pay gap figures by ethnicity group or a pay gap figure by pay band or quartile) and whether employers with disparities should be required to publish an action plan. The consultation closed on 11 January 2019 and the government has confirmed that it remains committed to introducing an ethnicity pay reporting obligation.
