Detail of outcome
This is the Government’s response to the equal pay audits consultation launched in May 2013.
This document covers the summary of answers provided by respondents to the questions raised in the consultation document. It also covers the Government’s consideration of the responses and specific concerns raised by respondents, and what actions it intends to take to ensure the forthcoming Regulations are fit for purpose.
In June 2012, the government published its response to the Modern Workplaces: Equal Pay consultation, which sets out our commitment to introduce regulations for mandatory equal pay audits in the specific circumstances where an employment tribunal finds a clear breach of equal pay law.
This consultation explores further the details of equal pay audits and the likely contents of impending legislation which, it is hoped, will come into force in 2014.
