Tories want 'wage audits' of unfair workplaces

Opposition believes audits will end sex discrimination

The Conservative Party’s shadow minister
Theresa May has put forward a plan which
would see company’s that lose wages tribunals undergo a ‘pay audit’ of their
entire staff.

The auditing call comes over reports the pay tribunal system is close to
breaking point with Equal Opportunities
Commission
chairwoman Jenny Watson saying there had been a huge increase in
cases due to ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers.

May told BBC Radio 4 that the
Conservatives were determined to address the pay gap which meant that women were
paid, on average, 17.2% less than men.

But it drew concerns from business groups with the British Chambers of
Commerce warning that the proposals would add to the burdens already placed on
employers.
