I am an expert in all aspects of gender and ethnicity pay gap reporting

Gender and Ethnicity Pay Gap Reporting

I have deep knowledge and experience of all aspects of gender pay issues. I have advised dozens of employers for many years and across a wide range of industries including advertising, retail, hospitality, technology, professional services and law firms. Although not yet a legal requirement, I have also advised many employers on their ethnicity pay gaps.

I have deep knowledge of Gender Pay Gap Reporting regulations. I advise clients on who is within scope and what elements of pay to include, including more complex elements such as flexible benefits, share schemes and stock options.

As well as ensuring legal compliance, I go further to analyse clients’ data to get to the root cause of any pay gaps. By carrying out more specific interrogations of data, hypothesis testing, and tests against a range of additional statistics, I can find where gaps are coming from. Working in this way, I can help clients identify specific targeted measures that will have a meaningful impact on workplace diversity and reduce their gender pay gaps.

Clients also regularly ask me to draft and advise on their gender pay gap reports to help tell the “story” that is shown by their data.

Other specific areas of focus

In addition, I am an expert in age discrimination and run Lewis Silkin’s specialist age discrimination site: I also have a great interest and expertise in religion and belief issues in the workplace. I have been quoted by the media many times speaking about the practical impact of new cases and what they mean for employers.
