BBC investigated for suspected pay discrimination

Posted Tuesday 19 Mar 2019

The BBC is under investigation over suspected pay discrimination against women. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) launched an investigation which will look at records dating back to January 2016 to assess whether the pay differences at the BBC are "because of sex, whether it is direct sex discrimination or indirect sex discrimination". The EHRC hopes to publish the results by the end of this year.
