Equality In The Workplace Needs To Go Beyond Gender

Employers of over 250 people are now required to report on their gender pay gaps but those who want to get the most out of their staff and ensure that they are treated fairly should go further and conduct a wider audit looking at a range of characteristics from gender and parental status, to disability and ethnicity, identifying the barriers to equality in their workplace. To shift the dial, we need to share the burden (and joys) of care fairly: Fawcett supports EHRC's call for use-it-or-lose-it leave for fathers with fair levels of pay. Employers can equalise their enhanced maternity and parental leave pay policies right now to encourage that.
