Summary

On 19 June 2014, the Government published its response to the consultation on Equal Pay Audits together with the draft Equality Act 2010 (Equal Pay Audits) Regulations 2014. For equal pay claims presented on or after 1 October 2014, Employment Tribunals will have the power to order an employer to carry out an equal pay audit (EPA) where a finding has been made that the employer is guilty of sex discrimination in relation to pay. This could be either an equal pay claim or a dispute over a non-contractual payment, such as a bonus. Our Looking Ahead factsheet on equal pay audits focuses on the key points from the draft regulations.
