Discussing pay with colleagues

Since 1 October 2010, pay secrecy clauses within employment contracts are unenforceable if they are related to a protected characteristic. Read our guidance for further information on how this will affect you:

We are monitoring the impact of the new provision restricting the enforcement of pay secrecy / confidentiality clauses (section 77 of the Equality Act 2010). We would therefore be interested to hear from employees and employers who have experience of it and / or concerns or queries about it. Please contact equalpayfeedback@equalityhumanrights.com. The information that is sent to us will be kept confidential at all times.
