Conduct an equal pay audit

Key points

  • An equal pay audit can help an employer to comply with its duty under the Equality Act 2010 to pay employees equal pay for equal work.
  • An equal pay audit involves comparing the pay of employees who are performing equal work to determine if there is a pay gap due to sex (or another protected characteristic).
  • The employer should be prepared to take action should the audit uncover that employees are not being paid equally for equal work.
