Theresa May has announced plans to make employers reveal their ethnicity pay gap.
It is hope this will identify extent of discrimination, in the workplace, on race grounds and that this will change in the future.
Currently only 3 per cent of employers measure their ethnicity and disability pay gap.
This announcement comes after the gender pay gap revealed huge discrepancies in cretin companies and sectors.
Ms May said: “Every employee deserves the opportunity to progress and fulfil their potential in their chosen field, regardless of which background they are from, but too often ethnic minority employees feel they’re hitting a brick wall when it comes to career progression.
“That’s why I’m delighted to launch the Race at Work Charter, which gives businesses a clear set of actions to work towards in helping to create greater opportunities for ethnic minority employees at work.”
Sandra Kerr, race equality director of Business in the Community, an outreach charity, said: “All organisations should recruit from the widest pool of talent and support progression.
“The Race at Work survey of over 24,000 employees showed that all too often ethnic minority staff are still encountering significant disparities at work.
“The Race at Work Charter will support leaders and line managers to take practical steps to tackle the barriers.”
