CIPP survey on Ethnicity Pay Reporting

02 January 2019

The government has published a consultation on ethnicity pay reporting alongside a Race in the Workplace Charter, which asks how a new reporting requirement should operate. 

In order to report ethnicity pay information, employers must first collect and analyse information relating to different ethnic groups in their workforce. The consultation aims to agree on a consistent methodological approach which drives meaningful action while remaining proportionate and without adding undue burdens on business.

This consultation invites views on mirroring some or all elements of the gender pay gap regulations such as proposing the same threshold of 250 employees or above for mandatory reporting. It also sets out options and asks questions on:

  • What ethnicity pay information should be reported by employers to allow for meaningful action
  • Who should be expected to report
  • Next steps

The CIPP policy team has created a survey to gather information to help inform our response to this consultation.  The survey should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete.

Some questions in the survey refer to specific information within the consultation document, so please do refer to the pages cited for full details.

As with many consultation surveys, there may be questions that you are unable to answer or provide an opinion on, so please do just provide answers where you feel you can.

The survey will close at 11.45pm on 4 January 2019.  Thank you in advance for your time and input.
