This Equal Pay Audit Form can be used to collate and compare pay
information across the company in order to identify significant gaps.
Information should be collected for different grades or categories of staff
and then a composite figure reached for all levels across the Company.
Although private companies are not legally required to carry out equal pay
audits, it is good practice for all companies to conduct them regularly.
As of October 2014, employment tribunals have the power to require
employers to carry out equal pay audits where they have breached the equal
pay legislation. Carrying out regular equal pay audits makes it less likely
that inequalities of pay will occur and also demonstrates a commitment to a
fair pay system.
If inequalities are identified in an audit and there is no objective
justification for the pay inequality, then an action plan should be
developed in order to address any issues raised.
See the Equal Pay Audit Guidance Notes for an explanation of the process to
be followed and issues to be considered in preparing and conducting an
equal pay audit.
