Equal pay audit checklist

Published on: 27/12/2023

1. If you are a large organisation, conducting an audit voluntarily, have you considered the scope of your audit? Do you want to carry out a full equal pay audit (all employees) or want to take a staged approach, starting with one department so that you can perfect the process before widening this out? If taking the staged approach this needs to be balanced against the risk of equal pay claims as this process is likely to take more.

2. Will the audit be conducted internally or externally? Will you need an audit team to ensure those involved are able to access and collate the data required?
