EQUAL PAY : The impact of mandatory audits

31 October 2014  

Stefan Martin and Lizzi Hodgkinson take a detailed look at the recent introduction of tribunal orders requiring employers to carry out equal pay audits

From 1 October 2014, an employer will be ordered to carry out an equal pay audit if it loses a claim for equal pay or sex discrimination related to pay. What exactly is an equal pay audit, why have they been introduced and what impact will they have? This article addresses these questions and explores whether employers should carry out their own audits to identify problems before they end up on the wrong side of such an order.
